I have had severe leg aches for past 20yrs feels like toothache in bones, NO energy, weight gain, tired all the time, increase in migraine headaches,constipation,
not sleeping well and mood swings

Hi tiredallthetime,
You would benefit from reading our stories.
The thread was bumped up for newbies.

Your symptoms seem hypothyroid. My TSH has to be kept below one for me to be well.

Dear tired all the time,
This sounds just like me. I thought that I was reading something that I had written and forgot about. Wow someone else out there feels like I do. The only thing that you didn't mention is depression. I have had it really bad lately and I don't know what to do about it.
Where do I go to read those stories that treefrog is talking about?

Hi Bethbreed,
Have you gone to a Dr.? What are you doing? I don't understand any of this stuff. I did read a lot of posts but it still doesn't make much sence to me. I am depressed also and all these health problems don't help. I've been having back troubles for the last 2 yrs also. Take care.

Re: Test Results????

Hi bethbreed and tiredallthetime. We have two threads on this Board that are used to store "archival" data and are always on this first page. Both threads have been viewed so many times that they have little flaming folder icons in the left column, making them easier to find. But sometimes we have so many other posts that these threads move down toward the bottom of the topic listings.

The stories thread has the full name <B>"Let's post our stories here. I will start with mine:"</B>. Here's a direct link to it:
<A HREF="" TARGET=_blank></A>

The information archive thread has the full name <B>"Information Archive</B>. Here's a direct link:
<A HREF="" TARGET=_blank></A>

Sometimes our bodies give us symptoms of thyroid disease (including depression), yet our blood tests show thyroid hormone levels within the lab's "normal" ranges. There are a variety of reasons why this happens, and many of us find that we feel best when adjusted to blood levels that would otherwise be considered abnormal.

That is why we try to select doctors who will treat us for our symptoms instead of our blood levels. Reading through the Stories and Information Archive threads, you will find a ton of useful stuff to present to your doctors as evidence that you have a problem. It is helpful to read that others have had similar issues and learn how they resolved them and returned to good health.

Let us know if we can answer any questions.
