I've been feeling fatigued, weak, sore and stiff for months. I've got a ton of symptoms, but essentially I have terrible body aches, mostly in my arms, but also in my quads at times, I was so stiff for a while I could barely walk and there was a couple of weeks that I could barely get out of bed. I've been to several 'doctors' and had lots of blood tests, but the only thing that showed up was elevated liver enzymes (consistently) and elevated. A.S.M.A.. I was on Statins for a few months, but quit taking these when I could no longer walk. Stopping these (months ago) did not do much for my symptoms. I was working out 7 days a week about a year ago, now I can barely do the treadmill once a week.
I recently had a high TSH test, but I know they have tested it before and not commented. Still waiting for the results of the more detailed thyroid tests. My oral body temp is below 36 in the morning and was even below 36 mid afternoon yesterday. It has also tested low in the past when I thought I had a fever.
I have very bad Arthritis, so the quacks are hung up on that as the cause. But I could swallow the whole bottle of voltaren and not notice a reduction in the stiffness, whereas in the past they would definitely help me.
So I'm wondering if anyone else has had myalgia and stiffness while being hypo?

Low body temp
Scaly/bleeding skin on knees
Slow heart rate (could be the BP drugs)
