I am going to repost my questions. For several years now I have been diagnosed with Chronic fatigue syndrome. However my primacy care doctor did some labs a couple of weeks ago and this is what she found. See below. However my primary care doctor looks at the lab and it says "normal".But I think she should look at me clinically. I really feel like I have hypopituitary symptoms. Is this what has been making me so sick for the last several years. I am pretty much housebound and very sick right now. I really need you to look at this for me.
My Free T4 levels are borderline low at 0.9 normal is 0.7-1.8
TSH is also borderline low at 0.71 normal is 0.50-6.00
Total T3 is 124
Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies are 15, normal is <35
Just don't feel well - general malaise/Flu like symptoms
Shortness of breath with minimal exertion
Cold feet and hands sometimes purple in color
Can't loose weight
Weight Gain on 1400 calorie diet. Using Weight Watchers and I follow my plan 100%, easy to do with no appetite.
I can not handle any stress
Insomnia - only sleeping 3-4 hours per night and I can not initiate sleep until 3am
I have two small hypoechoic nodules in my thyroid gland both less than 1 cm in size
My skull has an appearance of salt and pepper however my parathyroid hormone is normal.
I really need some expert advice. Does anyone have a clue what could be going on. I wonder if my pituitary may not be working correct.
I was a RN for 18 years and I know what doctors think about patients with CFS. I was given one anti depressant after another.
