In Reply to: Q: TSH RESULTS/SYMPT./VERY LONG/PLEASE READ posted by Cynthia on October 01, 2000 at 01:00:44:

: hello, i've been reading the board for a couple of weeks hoping to find an answer. i've decided to post my questions. this board is GREAT! i wish i would have found it a few months ago,but very thankful to have it now. anyway, my questions. i am 27, female 2 children (2&4). i have every and mean every symptom of hypothyroid with a few hyperthyroid. completely convinced was hypo, but TSH came back .09 which is hyper (or high side of normal,dr.'s words). not losing weight, extreme fatigue, problems sleeping at night, but could fall over at anytime during day and can't hardly wake up in mornings, hands swelling worst in morning and eve.,some in feet, acne(always complete clear complection),muscles and joints hurt and ache,hair breaking off to the point had to get it all cut off,slight incontience,dry skin,very forgetful,rapid pulse could go on and on. pitutary gland was norm.(what dr. said) adrenal gland was little low at 10, did some kind of stimulating test and said looks like adrenal norm. blood sugar little low at times during these test 62 and 66. bought home blood sugr. tester, he thought maybe hypoglycemia, stays pretty normal, a little low at times. anywho, dr.thinks complete hypoglycemia. i don't. oh, my thyroid is enlarged did ultrasound (at endo.)he called it a goiter. regular doc said TSH in middle of range when i said, wasn't it .09, he said yes, it ranges from .05-6 so .09 is in the middle. Endo. said little on the high side but not the problem. what do i do. does it sound like thyroid to any of you? i have always been entergetic, not hyper, just could accomplish whatever i needed to do,now i'm doing good to get out of bed. Please help! i've got to feel better, my 4yr. old daughter,says mommy i miss you and it breaks my heart. she can tell a difference. Sorry to just keep going. i needed to get all that out. thanks. please reply.

Cynthia, it does sound like thyroid problems!!! Your doctor can only do so much so ask him/her to send you to an endocranologist..I probably spelled that wrong. This kind of a doctor can help.
Sometimes they take a while to get in for a visit so I would tell your doctor asap. My visit isn't until the middle of November and I cried like a baby when they told me that. My husband says the same
thing as your daughter and the sad thing is that I miss him too. We can spend time together, but it is like I am in a blurr the whole time. I know it must be very hard to make a young child understand
without scarring them that you don't feel good. People who don't have thyroid problems have no idea what it is like and think that we should be able to take a nap and feel fine or just "get over it", but
that is not true. Make your doctors talk to you and be specific. You need to understand what is going on with your body, but don't feel alone because thyroid problems are very common. I couldn't understand
from your note if you were hyper or hypo, but it sounds like to me that you are hyper. I am hyper and I have the rapid heart beat and enlarged thyroid too. I have a lot of the same symptoms as you.
Keep your chin up. Soon they will have you all figured out and you will be playing with your daughter just like old times. Good luck, Dawn
