Sorry to hear about this.
Which investigations have been done so far?
What about thyroid hormone levels?
Thanks for your reply.
Well your symptoms match with the thyroid hormone problem but if the tests are negative then less likely. your problem doesnot indicate a single medical problem , it seems more of a multi systemic problem. i suggest that you should ask your doctor to refer you to an internal medicine specialist who will do a detailed examination and after that as per his suspicion he can decide for further investigations. moreover he can decide about further referral. Raynauds sort of things can be accompanying problems but definitely these things needs examination by a specialist. As far as anti depressants are concerned your gp is thinking so because you have got your investigations normal but i suggest you should label your problem to be anxiety related after you have been seen by a specialist.
i hope this helps you.
Normally thyroid hormone levels are good indicator of function of the thyroid. If they are normal then the problem is less likely to be associated with thyroid, Antibody levels can predict associated or predisposing causes but the levels ultimately decide that there is any dysfunction or not. Thats why i have advised you to see an internal medicine specialist so that he figure out the problem and take you out of this confusion.
