In Need of Help. Thyroid?

From: AGreene110 - 3 years 30 weeks ago

I really need help. I am currently taking Armour because Synthroid made me feel worse. For the last six months I have started gaining weight, losing my hair as well as a ton of other issues I will lost below. I feel terrible and have seen doctor after doctor and just getting worse everyday. I am currently doing IGG replacement therapy for Common Variable Immune Deficiency which I told I have and would feel better with the therapy. So far its not helped me at all and still on antibiotics and same problems I went in with. I have seen two different Endocrinologist and they say its not my thyroid. I would greatly appreciate any help. My thyroid levels are find but my antibodies are high since I started IGG therapy and Armour. My symptoms/problems are below:
charley horses/rls
food intolerances after pregnancy (milk/eggs)
Swollen hands
frequent urination
brain fog
memory loss
difficulty sleeping but always tired
hair loss
pain everywhere
can't workout
sore/aching body
muscle weakness
hot during day, night sweats
fast/irregular heartbeat
shortness of breath
panic attacks
infections (ear)
rashes and bumps all over
dry and scaly face with sores
lack of sex drive
Side effects to most medications
Carpal tunnel surgery
tubes in ears
3 LASIK surgeries still wear glasses
Always have sinus/ear infections
I can sleep for 12 hours and still be tired.

Is this good advice?

I can't really say anything to help, but just that i understand, as i am going through most of the same symptoms as you. I feel like i am going insane sometimes, especially with the memory loss, hours go by and i haven't got a clue what i've done in that time. I'm so scared and i just want all this to stop. I wish you all the best, and hope it helps to know that your not alone in suffering this
