hi everyone-i am new to this board and to thyroid! i am a 35 yr female--I have been having symptoms since i was 13 yr old, I have been dx with supraventricular tachycardia, fibromyalgia, mysofascial pain. I just had an echo done to rule out mvp. no evidence, so the next step my dr. is doing is sending me to an endo to check my tsh and etc, my regular blood test are normal, i dont remember the exact numbers but i think my t3 uptake was 30, my t3free was 2.8--or it might be the other way around. I am soooo sick of feeling sick--i have been dealing with this almost all of my life. here are some of my many symptoms--i am not sure if these are any symptoms of thyroid problems or not---the thing that bothers me the most is--i get extremely tired after i have been awake for 8 to 9 hours and if i dont crash when i get those tired feeling then i am miserable the rest of the time i am awake. If i push myself to stay awake then i lose that sleepy feeling til the next day at the same time!!!! I get so tired that my mind shuts down, my ears ring, my head feels full, and i am weak and i cant carry on a conversation, my voice gets hoarse (thats when everyone around me knows i am pooped). I also have stomach problems, constipation, headaches(when i am tired) and shoulder and neck pain, monthly cycle every 21 days, theres plenty more, i am too tired right now to think of them all. Today i had an interview and i totally blew it---it was my usual time to get those crappy feelings and dont you know i got them right in the middle of hte interview--i think the girl thought i was either stupid or on drugs!!! does anyone else have problems with getting that tired after being up only a short time?? its really ruining my life! sorry for crying on your shoulders!!! I was really just trying to see what you guys could share with me til i get to see the endo--its hard waiting that long!! thanks alll!!! joyce
