| | What's wrong with me? Hyperthyroidism? Graves?
I have been sick for the last 5+ weeks, ever since a nasty case of either food poisoning or the 24 hour stomach flu. A week after I was diagnosed with dehydration because of dizziness, palpitations, and a fever. I upped my fluid I take and got rid of those particular symptoms but for the past month now I've had serious symptoms if something (maybe related maybe not).
I am male, 19, and healthy other than that I had a splenectomy 2 years ago. Moved to California from Canada 4 months ago.
- heat sensitivity (love to be in cold places lately.
- heart palpitations (with physical activity ex. Walking up stairs, but sometimes at random)
- foggy headed feeling
- tightness in neck (side muscles, sternomascleoid I think they're called), muscles get tight in the front or at the side near my head and lasts about 20 minutes, get urge to massage neck and move nodes around) - could be anxiety related
- dizziness (not spinning vision or vision going black, just off balance)
- fatigue (better with rest, but I'm getting 8 hrs a night at least)
- inability to walk for long periods (get weak knees, mild dizziness)
- foggy headed feeling is very food related, if I do not eat for 4-5 hours I get very weak and foggy and have trouble walking, if I eat a big meal at a restaurant I almost get a head rush like the opposite end of the spectrum)
Other symptoms I've noticed that may be related (don't always occur):
- blurry vision (feels like my prescription has changed, vision seems hazy but not double, feel like I can only focus on a small area and everything else is fuzzy)
- slight tremor
- sensitive to loud noise
- extra prone to sickness, have spent 3 of 4 weeks with bad colds (sinus, throat, cough)
I have seen 2 doctors and had blood work, EKG, tested for mono, diabetes, anemia, etc. had tsh done and waiting on t3 and t4
Everything has come back normal, tsh was 1.4 can't recall other results. Also have been taking basal body temperature too for last 2 days, read 37.3 Celsius and 36.3 Celsius with normal range considered 36.2-36.8 Celsius for those who think in Fahrenheit.
Any ideas what could be wrong with me? Doctors don't seem to think it is Graves' disease and are skeptical about thyroid after normal TSH
