I have heavy fatigue, dizziness, temperature of 94.4

I’m 45. Have hypothyroidism, a smoker and mother of 2 year old child. Getting dizzy spells. My mother and a grandmother both had brain tumor. I don’t think that’s what this is though. I have horrible teeth, constant infection with them. I also have ear and sinus issues. The sinus issues cause me to vomit on a daily basis. I’ve lost 10 lbs in the last month with that. Any input would be helpful.

The brain tumors... were they pituitary tumors? Have you ever had any problems with kidney stones, bladder infections, or blood in the urine?

They were not pituitary tumors my moms tumor was on the brain stem and wrapped around the carotid artery.
I’ve never had gall or kidney stones, although I had to have my gall bladder removed. At the same surgery I had my right ovary removed because of a cyst.
I’ve only had two bladder infections and they were both after having a pap smear for my military physical.
I also was shot twice in 2012. And had a foot of small intestine removed and femoral artery and nerve damage. So far I’ve not had any complications from that.

I'm not in the medical profession... but your temperature and infection has me wondering if they have tested you for sepsis? I had something possibly similar, but my infection was in my lungs... ended up with course of IV antibiotics (ceftriaxone) through Picc line to heart daily for 27 days. I think it may be worth asking you doctor...

Thanks for your input. I’m trying to stay on top of these teeth. Usually four at a time are infected.

Hello~It appears that most of your problems are all related, meaning the sinus infections and ear infections could be due to the teeth, and also, the teeth can be due to the sinuses. I would certainly get both checked by the dentist and also an ENT physician.

Your body's ability to repair and heal at temperatures below 98 °F is severely diminished!
Your under-regulated or unregulated hypothyroidism must be addressed immediately in order to restore your body's defenses.
It is imperative that you address this BEFORE attempting anything else and waste valuable time.

The only  contraindication would be if  your hypothyroidism is secondary to  adrenal exhaustion . In such event the adrenals must be treated first , prior to hypothyroidism.
I suggest you see a Functional medicine Doctor, you will sort it out for you.
Conventional doctors and Endocrinologists will not consider an adrenal exhaustion diagnosis until it's too late (adrenal insufficiency) when the damage is irreversible.

Also for the time being consider doing oil pulling (with coconut oil) first thing every morning, before ingesting anything. Just look it up online. You will eliminate Billions of harmful bacteria and toxic molecules from your  oral cavity  (the gateway into your body) every day you do this.
Long-term, you must consider fixing your teeth. Quitting  smoking would help too.
(You are at a high risk of heart attack/CVD /stroke, having  under-regulated hypothyroidism and
being a smoker)

Having had your gallbladder removed  puts you also at a risk of  being deficient in all the fat soluble vitamins A,D,E and K.  Your dental issues could be related at least in part to a functional deficiency of calcium, caused by the lack of vitamin D and vitamin K.
Vitamin D is necessary to process calcium and K to transport calcium to the bones and teeeth
instead of soft tissues.

Just my educated opinion.
Best wishes,
Niko

My thyroid issues have been under control for years. I’m in a program to stop smoking and I also take vitamin d. So far I’ve only been deficient in that. I’ve also been set up for getting my teeth out. Right now I’m on pure penicillin.
Thanks so much for all the support and concern for me. I did find out that my thermometer was not working properly and had to take it rectally,joy.
An accurate to test for thyroid function (ALL conventional tests only test for serum levels of thyroid hormones and NOT thyroid function) is by either asking for Free T3, Free T4 AND reverse T3.
A large number of thyroid patients have false negative labs due to erroneous conventional tests and continue suffering  unnecessarily (usually for life)
Meanwhile they may get  misdiagnosed and  be subject to controversial pharmaceutical treatments.
You may not be part of that group,  but what if you are?
If you want a easy self-test try Dr. Barnes Basal Temperature Test, which was the gold standard for testing for thyroid, before these new fancy and potentially faulty lab tests came about.
Just follow the simple online instructions to the "T".

In addition, if you're supplementing with vitamin D3, please do yourself a favor to get vitamin K2, which works with  D  synergistically to drive calcium to the right places in your body.

It is very common that most people after a gallbladder removal  don't realize that their impaired ability to process fats and lipids, can affect the functional levels of essential fatty acids and fat soluble vitamins.
So it might be tricky to increase your D levels satisfactorily.
Just my educated opinion.
This is not the place for myself or for others to diagnose or treat members .
You may need someone with functional medicine background to help you further with this.

Applied knowledge is Powerful!

Best wishes,
Niko
