27 y/o 5'2" female
symptoms/background: weight gain of 50+ pounds (particularly around face, neck hump, midsection) over last 5-6 years with extremely active lifestyle and balanced diet, depressive symptoms, amenorrhea/menstrual irregularities, occasional random muscular aches (not from physical activity), consistent issues sleeping, nonexistent libido, fatigue, decreased appetite but increased hunger (sometimes so bad it keeps me awake).
the only meds I'm taking are a multivitamin and occasional seasonal allergy meds
my doctors have dismissed my concerns as 'sometimes bodies just change' but got some bloodwork done that showed abnormal results, will share below. feel like I'm going crazy...just curious to hear others' thoughts.
-screened for cushings, negative
-cholesterol, blood sugar, kidney function all normal
-my TSH has always hovered around 2.4 uIU/mL I but has dropped from 2.4 in December 2019 to 1.7 in August 2021 to 0.9 in April 2022. but because its still technically in the 'normal' range of 0.4 - 4.2, my doctor won't do anything about it. to me, it's a pretty steep dropoff especially when viewed as a graph of all my past results
-hematocrit was 49.3%, normal range 34-46%; hemoglobin was 15.9g/dL, normal range 11.5-15 (and no, I wasn't dehydrated or had been travelling at elevation) doctor wants to monitor and retest in a month
