I am keeping a list of all my symptoms to take with me when I go to the endo next week. Hopefully she will take me seriously! I titled this my crazy world because this is what I deal with on a daily basis.

Fatigue- to the extreme
Joint aches
Muscle weakness
Achiness in my collarbones (feels really tight)
Tingling/numbness in toes
Swelling of hands/feet in the morning
Localized swelling in the back of my knee- about a month now
Dizziness, especially when bending over and standing up
Eyes are extremely sensitive to light
Constipation with diarrhea
Abdominal Bloating
Unable to lose weight
Shortness of air – especially at night or when eating
Chest Heaviness when I wake up (feels like someone was sitting on me all night)
Lump in front of neck (assuming its my thyroid) also swollen lymph node above collar bone
Headaches (usually 3pm everyday)
New acne
Night Sweats
Salt Cravings
Hot flashes
Forgetfulness
Recurring rash on neck
Right flank pain


History of:
Hashimoto's Thyroiditis- controlled with Synthroid 88mcg
Interstitial Cystitis
Epstein Barr Virus
Cervical Dysplasia
Reynaud's phenomenon

Family history:
Type I and II Diabetes

I've been tested for Lupus, which to me seems like the obvious answer...

Make sure you get tested for Epstein Barr, I have similar symptoms and I have been diagnosed with Epstein Barr. Best of Luck.
