Prednisone and hypothyroid
So I am hoping someone out there can give me some advice. Iused to be a very healthy gym rat, I worked out 3x a week and was 195lb with ~14% bodyfat... Then I became hypothyroid undiagnosed for probably 3 years til it got so bad i couldnt work out, was sleeping 14hrs a day and I gained 50lb. I was diagnosed with hypothyroid several years ago and started out on 25 mcg levothyroxine and felt great for a while. But my dose quickly became 50, 75 and I'm now up to 137. I also have CVID and have been repeatedly tested for thyroid antibodies and came back negative, but it may be meaningless as my self made antibodies are very low. I still have chronic fatigue, fogginess, muscle fatigue, insomnia, panic attacks etc. but I work out when I am able. The day that I work out I feel pretty good but I am wired that night, like I had lots of caffiene (I can't handle the stuff anymore). The following day I feel like a zombie, my neck is sore around my thyroid and I am exhausted but can't sleep that night. The zombie state persists for a couple of days. And now a new wrinkle I have started to have what I suspect is central sleep apnea. My resting HR is 55 and my sleeping HR goes as low as 35BP but I sometimes awake with my heart racing at over 135, even on my CPAP machine. My TSH is 2.55. Any ideas about the metabolic roller coaster or apnea? My resting temperature is ~96.8

The only time I seem to get relief from hypo and fibromyalgia symptoms is when I am on the higher dose of 180 mg of Armour. It is frustrating because I will finally start to feel better and enjoy life again and then I will get a hyperthyroid test result of too low TSH and too high T3 and the doctors will decrease my medication again and again the cycle continues of hypo and fibro symptoms in...
Dear All,We are planning for the child and we recently did Thyroid test. Its shows TSH level as 3.77. reference level given as 0.35-4.5. But our doctor(Gynacologists) told us like level 3.77 is pretty high might be the important cause for not getting pregnant. She too suggested us to take some other Reproductive tests. We are totally worried about this scenario. It would be really helpful...

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
Today is my 25th birthday, to my somewhat lack of surprise I can see already no one really seems to care.
