Im new at this, but everyone else I talk to about this gives me that "blank look". My friends and family I mean. Well... even some of my doctors. I have Hypothyroidism, on medication , my TSH is now 2.86. But my Thyroid Peroxidase Antibody is high at 274.7 (not sure what that means) Gained alot of weight. Not sure how much because I refuse to get on a scale. Also have Fibromyalgia. Was on Cymbalta for depression and the pain from the fibromyalgia. The pain is so bad I have to crawl out of bed. My feet hurt it takes my breath away every step I take. My doctor took me off Cymbalta because of the weight gain and put me on Wellbrutian. The Cymbalta was HELL to get off of, but i did it, but think I need to back on because of the pain. Oh, Doc told me not to try Lyrica because I will put on more weight. I also have Angioedema. They thought it was Heritary Angioedema, but blood work said wasnt heretary. I sweel all over my body. From the inside out. Face, hands, feet ,but the worse is my throat and I cant speak. I have hives all over. I look like someone beat me up while I was sleeping. I have abdominal pain and heartburn so bad, I have gone to the ER. They said I was fine and go home. I guess thats my internal swelling? My memory is shot. For some reason I cant remember hardly anything.
I am 44, single mom with two Awsome kids. I have always been atractive, fun, always positive. I am so ashamed of myself, I feel like I am being punished for something. I am seeing an Endo doc in August for the Thyroid.
Thanks for reading this, It helped to put it out there. Can anyone tell me if this is all related? Would love to hear from someone.
