48 years old
1 1/2 years....leads to several days to a week of not being able to stay awake or get out of bed
no other problems, weight gain, non smoker
The groin itch is not fungal ...the dr ruled that out. I have had many blood tests, from RA, hashimoto's, etc....
this try this again.... I had what they called an acute thyroiditis episode over a year ago...I could not stay awake and would sleep for days. through trial and error they gave me 5 mc of cytomel and 200 mc of synthroid which started to help. I had several of these episodes over the past year. I had to hire help to do my chores and I had to stop working out at the gym and my dance classes; as everytime I would even do 10 or 15 mins of exercise my symptoms of the hoarse voice, confusion, it would feel like my brain had a stroke as it wouldnt work well, aphasia, muscle and joint pain, shortness of breath, extreme fatigue would return and I couldnt get out of bed for days. IIt felt like I was dying and I put all of my affairs in order. I used to be able to carry 50 lb bags of dog food and now I am lucky if I can carry a gallon of milk. The sx's have been somewhat under control if I just dont do much except for go to work and then sleep when I get home and on the weekends. It has drastically changed my life. Recently, I tried to start just walking for 10 mins two times in the past five days; and now I am symptomatic again with the hoarse voice (no sore throat) extreme fatigue, muscle and joint pain etc.
Good question doctor. I am having blood ran as we speak for all of the heps (again), they have said I do carry a dx of Hashimotos now...but it wouldnt explain these sxs. It seems like whenever my body gets reaved up a little ; that is when I start having problems. If I dont exert myself at all it seems like I can make it through for the most part these days. I did get the flu about a month ago and it took me 10 days before I could get out of bed again...that isnt normal. I used to be an active female for all of my life. I stayed active working at least one full time and usually something on the side; I loved to dance and play .......these days if I do anything that requires adrenaline or sugar or I dont know what all goes into a body when you start to exert oneself that is when my body attacks me...
