I have hypothyroidism, PCOS, peripheral neuropathy,

Customer Question
I have hypothyroidism, PCOS...

I have hypothyroidism, PCOS, peripheral neuropathy, retinitis pigmentosa, carpal tunnel, migraines, narcolepsy, bipolar I, and metabolic syndrome along with Crohn's disease. I can sleep for 48 hours and sometimes a little more but normally I sleep 18-24 hours a day now. My narcolepsy is really bad right now. I never am rested even with all that sleep. I keep getting sick with the flu and stomach bugs too. My most recent medical complaint is that I am gaining weight rapidly and I notice it in my upper abdomen the most. I'm also very fatigued. I know that I am very sedentary right now as I am continually sleeping throughout the day, I can't seem to get up or stay awake very long. I will take my Adderall and go right back to sleep. This is driving me nuts! I am starting to breathe heavy! I have gained 15 pounds in a month! And when I went to see my OBGYN doctor she said that I had sky high blood pressure so now I have metabolic syndrome added to my list of diagnoses. I've never had high blood pressure in my life. I normally have low blood pressure so I am very confused. When I went into hospital last October my labs indicated that I had high cholesterol... I have never had that problem before! I take Armour Thyroid and am currently switching Endocrinologists because I am very unhappy with my current Endocrinologist, she won't even investigate if I have Hashimoto's or not. It took her forever to give me Armour Thyroid. She refused to give me any other thyroid medicine besides Synthroid for over two years. I never felt any relief from Synthroid and she didn't want to change me to Armour Thyroid but she finally did last year. My current Endocrinologist also refuses to discuss PCOS symptoms with me. Yeah I mainly talk to my OBGYN about my PCOS but can't Hypothyroidism and PCOS both make each other worse? And I would think that finding the cause of my Hypothyroidism would help with determining the correct treatment for it. The fact that I have autoimmune diseases makes me wonder if it's a reasonable to test for Hashimoto's. I am very distressed about this rapid gain of 15 pounds in a month but because my narcolepsy is so bad right now, I can't do much physical exercise and that's driving me insane!!! I play racquetball and my heavy breathing just walking to the toilet and short distances like that make my problem seem hopeless!

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

I had a migraine yesterday. They are episodic. I have nausea and throw up when I get migraines

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I believe that's all. Alrighty!

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
