I have been diagnosed with hypothyroid within the last year, my grandma on my fathers side had it as well. I take 50mcg Synthroid. I was having the symptoms for about a year before anyone figured out why I was gaining so much weight quickly and felt so bad all the time.. I have gained a total of 80lbs and still going steady unfortunately...and I don't eat bad at all. I'm now up to 205lbs vs the 125lbs I was in April of 2007. My numbers at last months check were fine, but I'm still gaining weight. Lately I have been nauseated constantly, like a sick feeling maybe too much acid in my stomach, its only if I have to get up in the morning and it goes away after I take a nap. I have pain in my chest as well, it starts in my chest near my sternum and radiates to my back shoulder and feels like I have something stuck in my throat that I cant swallow. Usually my jaw hurts along with it and the pain comes on randomly and has been going on before I even started taking Synthroid. I have been on Prevacid, it didn't work, then they had me take Metoclopramide 10mg that gave me diarrhea and made me tired all the time so I got taken off that and they put me on Aciphex.20mg I've been on that almost a month now, and its working a little on the nausea in the mornings, but does nothing for the pains. Now my periods have stopped, and I'm not pregnant, my Gynecologist already tested me.I'm also getting acne which I never get zits and I have 4 right now, and I have little black course hairs growing in random places, like on my nose, upper lip, cheek, and belly button. So I have been plucking and waxing like a mad woman.... Its been 4 months since I have gotten my period, my Gynecologist it seems is the only doctor willing to help, she had some blood work done to check my hormones I (no results yet) and then she wants to do an ultrasound on my ovaries. When I went in for my appointment my blood pressure was higher than usual, it actually has been higher the last 2 visits which is odd. She also is having me write down everything I eat because she does not believe me that I am not overeating. Since I have been writing down what I eat I have noticed that I only consume 1200 calories per day and I have been taking into consideration the amount that is fat cal and not much of it is except from peanut butter. I even went so far as to bring in a diagram and a list of my symptoms, dates and times I get the pain and I give it to the doctors and they act like they can help then say its in my head, I have had and EDG and everything was normal, the GI doctor said I just have a lazy stomach. I've had an ultrasound done on my upper right quad to check my gull bladder and I had a 3mm polyp that the doctor said is nothing to be concerned about. I have had probably every blood test imaginable over the last year. I've also been on medication for panic attacks and I still had the pain in my chest. Does anyone know what the pain is and why my periods have stopped? Or have any ideas or similar situations?
