I am 31 years old and I've been having health problems for the last 2 months. Fatigue, tightness in the chest, palpitations, pain in the sternum, spells of weakness. Got an ECG and Echo which was clear. Was then diagnosed with severe GERD (after an endoscopy) and very low (6) Vitamin D levels as well as low (120) B12 levels. I've been on meds for all three for about a month. Things have gotten a bit better but not much. I was wondering if I should get my thyroid levels tested as well? I have a family history of hypothyroidism (mother, aunt, cousins, grandmother). The last time I got it checked was about 3 years ago when my TSH was at 7.5. I haven't gained weight, and I am very active (yoga and weight lifting and martial arts), I also eat right, low carb, high protein, lots of fruit and green vegetables, a glass of wine a few days a week, On weekends 2-3. No coffee or tea. I used to smoke half a pack a day, have now cut it down to 2-3 a day. Do these symptoms sound familiar and should I get it checked out? Thanks
