I am new here and don't know where else to turn.
Ok, Here is my history: I have been Hypo since 1991. I had a bad case of thyroiditis in 1996/1997. Was put on 88mcg Levothyroxine and 15 mcg cytomel this past year (i do not convert).

My current symptoms: extremely tired i have to drag myself out of bed and just go through the motions all day; taking naps on weekends, weak, hives, tremble off and on, sore muscles to the point that it hurts to touch them it is like they get super tight and wont relax, dizzy off and on and upon standing, buzzing sensation in head off and on, vibration in muscles off and on, hands sometimes shake when I do things, slurring of words.

I thought it was all related to my thyroid but my thyroid levels are great right now with a TSH of .74. I thought it might be adrenal fatigue but my waking cortisol level was 22 (range 6-28). With it being so high, I doubt it would be worth getting the saliva test, do you? my only other thoughts are MS. I don't know, at this point, what else to do and I am frustrated cause I have brought all this up with my doctor and all he wants to do is change my anti-depressant meds. He thinks it is all related to that. I do not.

Does any one have any ideas or thoughts? I am open to anything right now

Hey AmandaMoo

Welcome to the board. My goodness u do have a lot going on! I'm so sorry for all that u'r going thru, but i'd sincerely suggest u see a neuro. The symptoms u have could be a number of things, ms or not, and seeing a neuro and getting a complete exam would certainly put u'r mind at ease. If it's anything neurological the doc can lead u in treatment and help u get past this. If it's not, then maybe follow u'r pcp's advice and try the new meds and see what happens. I'm so sorry i can't offer more input here, but that's truely where i'd be going with this were it me. Take care and let us know how u'r doing.
