Unhappy Symptoms - Getting to be too much to deal with

I have been dealing with several symptoms and I am not sure if they are all related and if they point to an autoimmune disorder.
1) One side of my upper lip keeps swelling for seemingly no reason. I thought it was an allergic reaction to a hard plastic straw I was using because when I stopped using it and was on prednisone the swelling went down quickly. The swelling has been down for about a week and half but now it is starting to swell again just not really bad.
2) My hip joints have been in a lot of pain
3) My vision is blurrier. I have never been prescribed glasses but I have had a harder time seeing at a distance.
I had blood test down about a week and half ago which showed my Neutrophils were high, Lymphs were low and my calcium was high.
It might be important to know that I do have Hashimotos but results show that my TSH and T4 levels are normal.
This has been going on for awhile and I am getting really frustrated and depressed. Please help!

Re: Symptoms - Getting to be too much to deal with

hi, I was wondering have you ever been tested for Celiac's Disease? I know somewhere on here I read someone said Hash. and Celiac's sometimes can go together. I was searching for Celiac's and found it because I recently was put on Gluten Free diet by a dr to help w/ my fibro/chronic fatigue/hypothyroidism. I've only been on it about a month and I think I'm seeing a little relief. Just a thought. Celiac's can cause lots of symptoms, rashes, lethargic...check it out on here. Cathy
