Hello. First off, I am not yet diagnosed. Have had enlarged thyroid, off and on, for almost 7 years with varying degrees of symptoms: Low body temp; terrible periods (have now had a hysterectomy); extreme to moderate tiredness; weak muscles including mouth, tongue - which also feels thicker - (hence slower speech), arms legs; dry skin; brittle nails; lose hair at time when symptoms are worse than usual; eyes feel "tight" .. don't know how else to describe it. I have been to a neurologist (4 years ago) and everything was fine; have had my TSH levels checked and were apparently in the normal range. However, every since my very first "crash" almost 7 years ago, I have had ups and downs. My symptoms are usually much worse after any particularly stressful time (now). I am going back to the doctor in December to try and get more testing done as it seems the older I am getting (50) the more pronounced and more often these "crashes" are happening. I think I am just use to being tired all the time, but the weak arms and hands, legs, jaws, mouth and tongue (which feels too big for my mouth at times) and enlarged thyroid and feeling cold are pretty bad right now. My main question to anyone out there is: anyone else have mouth/tongue problems and what tests should I have taken?
