Still feeling sick...no real changes, except now my joints seem to be getting worse (at least the ones in my hands), I have developed a slight reddish skin rash along my forearms, and my right clavicle is slowly getting bigger/pointer (though still hard)...maybe this has something to do with my thymus? Or maybe it's just more joint swelling--though it's only on my right side, which is coincidentally the same side that has neck swelling/soreness/tightness, whereas the swollen joints are on both sides of my body (both hands, feet, etc.).
I also see "floaters" a bit more than I used to, and I've noticed that at night, when I'm in my car and the lights are reflecting off of signs and whatnot, not only does this hurt to look at (my eyes are becoming very photosensitive), but if I stare for longer than a second, I'll see a second image lightly and fuzzily forming behind the first image. This usually only happens with the roadsigns, though, because they're reflecting so much light so brightly.
Appointment with the endocrinologist is on August 5th...and I cannot wait.
Most recent bloodwork came back normal for estrogen, prolactin, FSH, and "hormone" (testosterone, maybe???), and the doctor never bothered testing my TSH again arghhhhhhh.
I just want to get well; I've felt so sick since early April and it's slowly ruining my life. This has to end, preferably sooner rather than later. :(
