I posted earlier about dry mouth, thought about going to walk-in clinic today but have decided to make an appointment with my gynecologist instead. I have a lot of symptoms of hypothyroidism and plenty of peri symptoms, especially after ovary removal last year. The worst symptoms are weight gain and slow metabolism, even though I walk an average of 2-3 miles daily, anxiety, depression, irregular periods (anywhere from 15-35 days apart), panic attacks, worsened PMS, achy joints and muscles, brain fog, and sometimes sore breasts, also occasional insomnia that has become worse lately. Recently, I've started having dry mouth with chapped lips and a burning feeling on the tip of my tongue, which also looks redder than normal and is more sensitive than normal. I took my temperature this morning and it is 96.3. It has been low on other mornings when I've checked it. My GI doctor diagnosed a Vitamin D deficiency in May based on bloodwork results. He also felt the thyroid area and did not find any abnormality. I have never had a TSH test, though. Could this be a thyroid problem anyway??? Or is it all peri, or both? I'm so confused and tired of worrying all the time. It feels like my body isn't mine anymore, never knowing what will happen next.
