Hi everyone! :) I am so confused about my health and it’s so difficult to get answers. I’m a 25 year old female that was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis when I was 14. Aside from 2 times throughout those 11 years my thyroid levels have always been good so no treatment. Over the past couple years my body has started destroying my platelets, and I’ve developed lichen sclerosis. One doctor told me that because of how high my antibodies are that I’m most likely developing lupus. My question is- is this just hashimotos or is it something more? I’ve had testing for lupus and it was negative but other doctors have said because of my ANA titer it’s likely that I’m in the beginning of lupus. I’ve had other doctors tell me I don’t have hashimotos at all because my thyroid levels are normal. I’m so confused! My Ana titer was 1:1260 homogenous pattern. Thyroglobulin antibody was 2.5 (range 0-.9) and thyroid peroxyidase antibody 179 (range 0-34) Does anyone know what might be going on or have similar situations?
Incase symptoms might be relevant I am fatigued pretty constantly, if I step foot in the sun it’s 1,000x worse. I’ve been having a decent amount of wrist, knee and occasionally hip pain recently. Gastritis, esophagitis and bloating (despite avoiding triggers and taking meds), over the last couple weeks I’ve been noticing about a 99.5 temp although it’s usually closer to 97 for as long as I can remember. I’d say pretty extreme heat and cold intolerance. Postural orthostatic tachycardia sunstone. Irregular periods. Headaches. Anxiety, panic attacks. Dry skin. Raynaud’s disease. Mild face and finger/toe swelling when I wake up. Have had trace amounts of blood in urine for awhile now. That’s all I can really think of right now, idk what’s relevant and what isn’t. Thanks for anyone who takes a look :)
