Hi. I have been ill for the last 3 months and whatever it is seems to be progressing pretty fast.
At first Lupus and scleroderma were suspected but so far my ANA has been negative.
I started with deep pain in my legs, hips, and knees. I thought it might be a blood clot due to my smoking and being on birth control.
From there I have developed severe pain in my hands, feet, ankles, knees, and elbows all with mild redness and swelling.
Heart palpitations and chest pain with jaw pain that they suspect is SVT's. A bounding pulse. Numbness and tingling in my hands and feet, particularly with temp changes, migraines, skin changes, telangiectasia on my arms, hands, lips, and face.
breathing restrictions, fluctuating weight, hot/cold sensitivity, night sweats, hot flashes, the whites of my nails are turning pink and or disappearing, fatigue, and dry mouth and eyes.
My doctor suspected thyroid problems and did some labs.
My tsh was right in the middle
my T4 was high
and my T3 was very low.
Prior to this only my T4 was high but only very slightly.
The doctor said she thinks I have hashimotos but am hyperthyroid.
Is she confused or is this type of lab response something that occurs early in hashimotos prior to they thyroid fully hitting a failing point.
I still feel like they are missing something. Some symptoms seem to match and some do not.
