I've posted before, each time thinking something else was possibly wrong with me, but now I'm scheduled to visit an endocrinologist in two weeks, and think that maybe a hormone imbalance may be to blame for all of my symptoms, which include - [br>Hair loss (all over for about ten years, but mostly on the top of my head, said to be female pattern baldness, which I don't buy)[br>Migraines (have had for twenty years)[br>Knee pain in my right knee (MRI shows nothing, was told I'm just chubby and getting older)[br>A fleshy-feeling lump in my throat (barium test showed nothing)[br>Several yeast infections in the past year, plus a UTI[br>Blurred vision at times[br>Trouble concentrating[br>Trouble losing weight (I went from doing nothing to exercising five hours a week and lost only 3 pounds in six weeks)[br>Anxiety attacks (worse recently, but have had them for about 10 years)[br>[br>[br>More recently (in the past couple of weeks, I've been now noticing - [br>Itchy skin (mostly at night, in the scalp, back, feet, arms, legs and groin, pretty unbearable)[br>Heart palpitations[br>Hand tremors[br>Light-headedness/dizziness, mostly after standing, but not always[br>I've had so many tests, but the only hormone tests I've had are for my thyroid, all of which came back normal. I'm a 35-year-old woman and have had one pregnancy (and hope to have another one once I figure this all out).[br>[br>These things are really consuming my life and I really feel as though the doctors are trying to play everything off as coincidence, but I just know there's something wrong. If anyone has any advice or ideas on what might be going on, I would greatly appreciate the comments. I'm just at the end of my rope and don't know where to go from here if the endocrinologist doesn't find anything. Please help![br>[br>JackieView Thread
