I've been here before but I now have a better grasp of my symptoms and more information to work with, so I have some questions...
My thyroid has been checked, and most recently my TSH was 0.6. My T4 was normal on that paper but I was once told it was borderline high. Not sure about
I have IBS-like symptoms (frequent bowel movements, painful gas), anxiety, fast heartbeat, heart palpitations, need to eat about
every two hours, feel more awake at night (I do sleep for a long time though, which I don't think is consistent with hyperthyroid, although it may be from my antidepressant), low tolerance for heat, and some lightheadedness. Had some hairloss in the summer but it has slowed down a lot, and I am seeing more veins than I used to in my hands, wrists, and face which tells me my skin may be thinning. Oh, and I used to be a caffeine junkie, now I have a pretty low tolerance for caffeine. Used to drink a few cups of coffee or two energy drinks plus some diet sodas every day (not healthy, I know), now I drink part of one diet soda a day.
