Hi. I am 49 years old. When I started going through menopause I started getting horrible swelling and all of these blood sugar issues that cannot be controlled. I have been to 3 endocronologists and all 3 think it is anxiety. I do not. I think it is a thyroid problem. My symptoms are:
A very large thyroid nodule
Dry itchy skin that just flakes off everywhere
Hair falling out
Retain fluid easily
Freezingggg cold or way too hot
The first endo said it was prediabetes but my blood sugar never goes over 95. Never.
The second thought it was anxiety.
The third thinks it is anxiety or other things.
What I find that is odd is that no matter what I eat I cannot get the hypoglycemia under control. My last endo upped my carbs to 120. As soon as I started eating that many I was lethargic and crazy. I started getting thirstier and peeing even more and yet the more salt and carbs I consume the more weight I lose! Something doesn't add up. I am literally at my wits end with all these Dr's that can't get together and instead just keep telling me I'm anxious. I have tried every sleep aid and every anti anxiety med there is and none help.
Here is what I want to know.......
If you are hyperthyroid what symptoms do you have? And, can you please tell me how much sodium you consume? Tell me what carbs you eat or don't eat. Please tell me anything you can. I am so depressed and giving up hope. I have a good ENT and will be calling him tomorrow. I am wondering if the lab results I had a year ago made my thyroid look normal because I wasn't eating salt or many carbs???
Please help me any way you can. I am pretty much housebound now. I know myself and I am a fighter and this is not me!
