This is my first post, please excuse my lack of intro!
I have almost every symptom of a thyroid disorder; 60lb weight gain in a few years, hair loss, no sex drive, beyond tired all day, tendon issues in my foot, eczema in a few spots, abnormal period, extremely cranky, sleep apnea, frequent sinus infections, and I'm sure i'm missing some.
Every female on both sides of my family has or had a thyroid disorder.
AFTER having 2 kids, my weight, without trying was down to normal. I've gained since easiely losing baby pounds.
I started seeing the Dr for this a couple months ago. She was pretty sure I had hypothyroisism. Blood test is normal, ultrasound showed a nodule on each side of the thyroid, and nuclear uptake was normal. I was diagnosed depressed, and my past diagnoses were left alone (of bad allergies causing the sinus infections, obstructive sleep apnea, etc.).
I started wellbutrin 3 weeks ago, and am going back to the Dr today to discontinue it. On wellbutrin I'm sleeping until 9:30am even though I'm going to bed at 9pm. I feel so bad that my kids have been entertaining themselves for hours in the morning before I get up. I'm beyond cranky and yelling at the kids for nothing.
Is it possible to have a thyroid disorder with normal blood and nuclear uptake???
Besides being tired and weepy (I think weepy because I'm tired, and worse when I getting my period) I don't think I'm depressed. I have no thoughts of harming myself, I'm not worthless, etc.
Advice? Should I see an endo with normal tests?
