I am a 35-year-old female and I have a history of Grave's disease, treated with radioactive iodine 15 years ago and have been on Levothyroxine ever since. I have symptoms of hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism and my medication has been increased several times in the past due to high TSH. I am having headaches in my temples, Raynaud's, chin acne and chin hair growth. I have elevated BUN, creatinine ratio of 23 and a history of slightly elevated AST. There are joint pains and Raynaud's with swelling ankles, red joints at rest, some finger swelling and dizziness on standing, possibly hypertensive and speeding sensation.
I have burning pressure behind my eyes and sensitivity to daylight. My last TSH was elevated with low free T3 and borderline high free T4. What could possibly be the cause that I should talk to my doctor about?
Thank you doctor,
I am uploading copies of my latest lab work. My biggest complaint right now is these horrible headaches behind my eyes and at the back of my head. I am also continuing to have Raynaud's and my joints feel extreme pressure from my elbows down and knees down to my toes. My toes and finger joints will turn red and be very hot and achy sometimes as well. My doctor said she thinks my Raynaud's is idiopathic based on results, but I am still not feeling well.
I cannot handle cold at all and taking showers is getting very uncomfortable in my legs and feet. I am noticing swelling in my hands and feet and my veins are bulging, worse with heat or at rest. In fact, I am quite swollen in my hands when lying down. Am I starting to question a circulatory problem? I do get slightly pink in my cheeks periodically, but it doesn't look as severe as malar rash pictures I see online. This is mostly with activity or after showering. Any ideas on how to proceed? I am thinking of seeking a new physician.
Thank you doctor,
I will be sure to have these done right away.
