First time posting here, I just had some independant lab results come back because I had an extreme suspicion that I was hypothyroid.
I am 30 years old now and for the last 5 years I have put on 70 lb sof weight that have surprised me along with horrible symptoms.
I was used to be a competitive wrestler and boxer and was competitive at 135 lbs of weight. I had extremely high recovery and could workout for hours each day and back to back practices. I would often do 2 hours of wrestling and 2 hours of boxing a day 5x a week.
I ballooned up to 214 lbs within about 11 months after I had stopped the sport for a while. I just figured I was fat and out of shape and it was due to my eating habits.
I cleaned up all of my eating habits and dropped down to about 170-180 but c annot go lower. I currently sit at 190-195. I adopted an entirely vegan whole foods diet for about 4 months while boxing and wrestling 4 times a week along with a power lifting program I did for 5 months previously and am not losing any weight whatsoever.
The worst part is, is that I cannot recover from my workouts at all. I am sore every single day and i haven't worked out in 6 days and i'm still sore in my joints.
I have carpal tunnel and tarsal tunnel like symptoms.
My hands fall asleep when I lay down for bed and wake up in the mroning.
My pointer finger fingernails have weird ridges and some black streaks in them.
I have irrital bowel syndrome.
My sex drive dissappeared completely. My erections aren't as strong. My head if i let my hair grow will get red dry scaley patches that hurt and really bad dandruff. I have to shave my head often and the symptoms are lessened.
My daily temperature on getting up in the morning is 96.0-97.3 degrees.
Most days it is 96.0-96.5.
I am constantly tired and fatigued. Don't want to get up to do anything. I sleep ok but have a super hard time getting up in the morning. I get 8 hours a day though.
I have this white solid ring (it's opaque and faint) on my tongue i heard was like a tongue ulcer that can be associated with hypothyroidism.
I just don't recognize myself in the mirror. My face is puffy and I have no jaw/cheekbones like I used to.
Here are my thyroid test results. They appear normal and my TSH is within range. I was seriously contemplating just ordering thyroid-s and doing it myself to see if i can rid of these symptoms. Could I still be hypothyroid although the medical world says i'm not according to these results?
