Symptoms of what??

I have:

Brachial plexus neuopathy
Fibromyalgia (FM)
Swallowing difficulty
IBS with only constipation
Slow response duodenal flexure
Weak gag reflex (hardly any)
Chronic cough with mucus
Voice deepening/weakness
Positive ANA (off and on)
Clinical Depression

Does this sound like any nerve or other disease anyone has ever heard about? I am wondering because I have blamed everything on the Fibromyalgia for years and I am wondering if maybe something else could be to blame. My sister who , she thought, had FM for many years was rediagnoised with RA and Thyroiditis. I test ok for all thyroid tests except for the antibodies against the thyroid which I have not had.

I would like to hear others thoughts on this, so have at it. Any ideas will be appreciated.

Re: Symptoms of what??

that definitely sounds like a thyroid disorder, especially when you said the part about the voice deepening.

make sure you go to a doctor who does a thorough thyroid exam. what most doctors don't tell you is that they have different kinds of thyroid exams, but some HMO's don't cover the one that can really give you real results.

its a shame!
