Undiagnosed thyroid disease
I am certain that I have hypothyroidism (more than likely brought on by Hashimoto's Thyroiditits). I have been to an endocrinologist, gynecologist, dermatologist, and general practicioner over the last 3 years for symptoms that appear to be related to hypothyroidism. I even seem to vacilate between hyper and hypo symptoms. Thyroid and autoimmune disease runs in my immediate family, yet all of my tests thus far reveal that I am within normal parameters. I have even been tested for the thyroid autoimmune antibodies, which was negative two years ago. Symptoms, major hair loss, bowel issues, dry skin and hair, cracked heels, bruising, mood swings, palpitations, frequent thirst and urination, tiredness (I yawn during workouts), fluid retention under my eyes and in my legs, twinges in my neck, and now the most troubling of all: lichen sclerosis (down under- uggh). There are no specialists in Fort Myers and the closest Thyroid center in Sarasota (Dr. Mark Lupo) refuses new patients without a diagnosis! I need guidance before I give up hope.
