I have been suffering for the past two years with extreme fatigue, rapid weight gain, with difficulty losing weight. Currently I have have been experiencing what seemed like a UTI, but found through lab tests it was not a UTI, had an Ultrasound, all normal, and they are sending me to Urology/Gynecology to see if they can figure it out. I have all the symptoms of hypothyroidism, but none of the lab tests say that is what it is. I am 33, I weigh 175 pounds. I have gained 20 pounds in the past year, and the scale doesn't budge. I have always been active, use to run daily, and now it takes extra effort to even find the energy to attempt exercising. I'm cold all the time, although at night I will occasionally have night sweats. My hair is dry, my skin is dry, I am constantly tired, constipation, lack of sex drive, eyes are sensitive to the light... the list goes on. I am beyond frustrated. I have spent so much money trying to figure out what is up, just to be asked if I need anti-depressants. I know in my heart I am not depressed and there has to be some logical reason why I feel so crappy and exhausted every day. They have tested me for all sorts of things ranging from adrenal fatigue, cancer, fibroids, thyroid testing - including T4 and other uptake tests.
I'm at a loss, it seems I have every symptom except my body seems to tell Drs I am normal when I don't feel normal. I am not depressed, and could take the prozac they tried giving me to help with Energy but I know it's just covering up whatever is going on... I'm frustrated, and upset by all of this. I'm 33 and my life is passing me by because I can't get the energy to do much of anything, go to bed early, drag all day in a mind fog and just want to sleep, and go to bed early weeknights and take naps on weekends.
Life is great other than this... I was hoping to find a functional endocrinologist in my area of NH but haven't seen any online... I am at a loss, I am grateful for any help or advice anyone has or if this sounds like something that happened to you or if you are an MD and know what this could be, please help.
