Did they get better when you began the NuvaRing? Have you had all your hormones checked? Including your thyroid? Normally when a young patient goes into a primary care physicians office things like hormones and thyroid aren't regularly checked and are becoming more and more of a problem for our generation. I would suggest calling and seeing about checking your thyroid. Your symptoms also match an imbalanced thyroid.
Theres two types of imbalances, hyperthyroid and hypothyroid. Here are some symptoms...
At the onset of the disease, the symptoms can be vague and develop slowly. They may not include weakness, weight gain, cold sensitivity, cold hands and feet, fatigue, dry skin, brittle nails, and thinning, brittle hair. Other early symptoms include muscle achiness, joint pain, and heavy menstrual periods.
Hyperthyroidism can mimic other health problems, which may make it difficult for your doctor to diagnose. It can also cause a wide variety of signs and symptoms, including:
Sudden weight loss, Rapid heartbeat, heartbeat (arrhythmia) or pounding of your heart,
Increased appetite, Nervousness, anxiety and irritability, Tremor,Sweating, Changes in menstrual patterns, Increased sensitivity to heat, Changes in bowel patterns, An enlarged thyroid gland (goiter), which may appear as a swelling at the base of your neck,Fatigue, muscle weakness, and Difficulty sleeping.
Unfortunately the only way to confirm this is to draw your blood. Hope this helps! Brandie, RN
