Well, to start I was always healthy and in shape. When I was pregnant I ended up with Severe-preeclampsia and HELLP syndrome. Ever since then I have been in horrible health. I have gained over 100 lbs since 2006 despite good diet and exercise, and I just feel horrible everyday. I now have pages and pages of abnormal lab work but noone can tell me exactly what is wrong. Here are a few quick examples. Oh.. all of this started when I was 26... I'm 30 now and still sick.
I started sweating really bad and developed shortness of breath before the weight gain ever started.
I have Vit B12, Vit D, Magnesium, Ferriten defeciencies.
Was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism at one appointment, then told the next appointment I don't have thyroid issue by the same doctor. Was told to stop going to McDonalds.............which I don't eat fast food anyway.
I have Thyroid nodules and ovarian cysts (PCOS was ruled out, not sure how though)
IGF-1 (growth hormone) Low
Cortisol Low and High.. results are varied even though done at same time of day.
There are so many other things but I just can't remember them all.
Does anyone at all have these same problems? What could be causing all of this? I'm feeling so bad these days but none of my doctors can explain why or do anything to help me. Doctor said she has never had anyone respond to hormone replacement like me and that she can't explain it.
