I'll try make this as brief as possible...
I'm female, 28 yo, used to be fairly healthy, have one child born in 2011, do not smoke or drink.
May 2014 I was having a general checkup when doctor noticed my thryoid was swollen. Had a scan which confirmed it was and scan also showed 5-6 nodules in each thyroid. The none dangerous type. Biggest is in my right thryoid, almost 1cm. Doctor told my nodules were very common and scan showed nothing to worry about.
June 2014 I went in for lap surgery (2 abdominal hernias). Woke from surgery to develop tachycardia/heart palpitations a few days later. I went to ER where my heart rate was recorded at 160bpm. I had a chest CT, ECG and many other scans which all showed no reak reason for fast heart rate. It seemed to settle over time, and by time I mean a few weeks, so I let it go.
Forward 3 months - September i develop swelling in my right ankle/foot (no other issues). Go back to doctor, does many blood tests. dvt and pelvic scan, foot ultrasound and there is no obvious reason for single foot swelling. I'll mention I also had this same foot randomly swell back in 2007 and during pregnancy. Always the same foot, but it never lasted this long.
October, November pass and my foot still swells on and off. I start having other weird symptoms. Severe headaches where I can only cry an sleep them off, nausea where I'm at the brink of throwing up (not pregnant), strange bowel movements where one night I went out to dinner and spent the entire night in the bathroom with my partner worried about me.
Late Nov I begin to get these strange tremors in my hands. These have now gone for weeks. Just before new year my heart palpitations returned along with the tremors, my rest heart rate is between 100-110bpm. Fine tremors and extremely extremely fatigued, I always feel hot and heat intolerant.
Recent blood work has come back with these results -
TSH .65 (normal range .50-4.5)
T3 4.6 (normal range 3.1-6.8)
Everything else is normal except my White blood cell count is constantly up and down. Most of the time down This weeks test showed neutrophils were 1.6 (normal range 2-7.5).
My doctor has no idea what could be wrong. It is driving me insane. i just want to be healthy! Any opinions?!
