I'm new to this board so forgive me if I happen to ramble a bit.
About 5 months ago it felt like someone turned on the adrenaline switch in my body. My symptoms were, and still are, as follows:
-sensation of pounding heart
-numbness in arms and fingers
-swollen eyes (could be from lack of sleep)
-irregular period (I used to be like clockwork)
-increased appetite (eating a lot more than usual and not really gaining any weight at all)
-inability to relax
When my doctor tested my thyroid she told me that I am in the "normal range" and I've been on awful psych meds for the last 5 months with zero physical improvement. I asked her for my levels yesterday because I have a friend who has Hashimotos but was also told her levels were "normal" for 2 years. I'm exhausted and energized all of the time and I am doing everything I'm supposed to as far as working out goes and mental health. I'm a runner and meditate etc.
My levels are as follows just for reference:
FREE T3- 2.6
FREE T4- .81
Is it time for me to see an endocrinologist? I'm so desperate to feel normal again and I don't think my doctor really knows much about this. My mother is hypo and my grandmother also has hormone issues so these kinds of things run in the family.
Has anyone ever been "in the normal range" but felt like absolute garbage? Where do I go from here??
Thank you in advance for any insight.
