I am in that awful waiting game between tests. I had neutropenia and my TSH was high. T4 was 13, so on the low side. I was having terrible oral symptoms of painful sore mouth, swollen tongue and teeth pain. I was not eating well. I had dropped my dose a few days before my last endo appointment due to the symptoms but even though the oral symptoms reduced, I felt very stressed and tired. Endo was not pleased I had cut my dose completely and reinstated me on 5mg despite my neutropenia.
I felt much better for a few days and seemed on the up. Then a week last Saturday I was put under tremendous stress by a family row and had a 'hyper attack' that night with racing pulse all night and zero sleep. Since then I have declined rapidly. My pulse recovered but my blood pressure is often under 100/60, and I feel so week, dizzy and shattered. I have lost more weight as I am not eating well and have to force down every mosel. My endo ordered tests for next Tuesday and said to see him a week later so I am in limbo. I can't work out if I am hyper (pulse is in the 70s so not majorly fast but I have night sweats and hot flashes. My legs ache like they did when I was really hyper), or hypo (I am so tired. My hot flashes alternate with feeling cold and my BP is so low). Anyone else who is hyper get hot flashes and then sometimes feel cold? Thanks
