1947387 tn?1325644930 I have an appointment w/ my thyroid doctor in 2 days and will talk to her about this, but I honestly don't think she knows a lot about atypical symptoms. She has said this, and the reason I see her is that she is very honest and open minded, however I think her experience is limited. 1) Is it proper to take Armour on an empty stomach? It seemed like when taking it with food I was not absorbing it the T4 component very well.
1035252 tn?1427231433 Weight that you gain too much of, or too rapidly, can cause serious issues during pregnancy and after no matter how small or large you were to begin with. Myth: a heavy woman should not gain ANY weight during pregnancy. Reality: False. However, every woman MUST be aware of the food she is putting in her mouth. You must make healthy choices and supplement unhealthy cravings with smart snacks.
Avatar n tn You were not specific on the symptoms you experience, but my guess is that when you exercise you don't drink water, or you sweat to excess. This will dehydrate you and you will lose salt and other minerals. You can experience shaking of the hands, visual disturbances, headaches, stomach aches, stitches in the sides, exhaustion, low grade temps and other unpleasant symptoms. If this is the case, try drinking a fluid that has minerals in it like Cytomax.
Avatar n tn I can be tired after 12 hours sleep! Can I be suffering symptoms from my thallassemia. Does any one else feel the same way that I do? This is a little bit hard for me, but I don't want to complain.
Avatar n tn All of my symptoms started. off during my pregnancy of my first child back in 2003 I woke up one morning with a HORRIBLE headache. It was unlike any pain I ever had. By the way I have never in my whole life had headaches until the pregnancy. But anyways it felt like a headache on the bone of my nose on my left side of my face. It was throbbing and making my whole face and head hurt.
Avatar n tn Reading everyone's concerns on this message board (along with my concerns) I thought it might be a good experiment(and a helpful reference guide for everyone) to list ALL the symptoms they have had and ALL the tests that have come back normal and ALL the specialists they have seen that have concluded that it was all anxiety. If you can put it in a LIST FORM with no back story so it is easy to reference that would be great.
Avatar n tn You should be check thoroughly for diabetes or glucose intolerance (pre-diabetes) with a formal glucose tolerance test if not done already Good luck
Avatar n tn Through research, however, I've come to realize that hypoglycemia (reactive--meaning after eating) causes the dizziness AND the anxiety. Your could have a GTT--glucose tolerance test-- or even a GITT (glucose intolerance test) for 3-6 hours, but the numbers on these tests are not definitive.
11765409 tn?1420947689 If you do find that you get yeast infections a lot, do get your doctor to arrange for you to have a glucose test done. People with glucose intolerance (pre diabetes) and people with diabetes are prone to getting yeast infections. Do bear in mind too, that being on a course of antibiotics can also bring on yeast infections.
Avatar f tn Have you checked for GTT? These symptoms can be related to Glucose intolerance. In case if you have gestational diabetes, you can have such symptoms and other vague symptoms. It will be too early to think about brain tumor or any aneurysms. Are you on any vitamin supplements? Vitamin B12 deficiency can also cause this. I think you should see your gynecologist and also physician to evaluate your symptoms. Hope this helps and also that your pregnancy should go well.
Avatar n tn Has anyone experinced thyroid problems in pregnancy as well....if so what were your symptoms and how did they treat it and do you know if I'm at risk for pre-term labor, being I'm having these contractions? Any help would be appreciated ladies.
159063 tn?1247276417 If the correct ratios and relative amounts between these hormones are not maintained within a normal range, certain pregnancy-related outcomes may emerge, such as high blood pressure, glucose intolerance and gestational diabetes, eclamptic conditions with seizures and/or toxemia, or extremely severe nausea. "These pregnancy-related factors may serve as indicators of underlying biological conditions that may influence a woman's lifetime risk for breast cancer.
Avatar n tn I just recently was confirmed moderate glucose intolerance with and OGGT test. My fasting glucose is perfect. So an OGGT test might show up something. Also have you checked reverse T3 and the free T3/reverse T3 ratio? It's your cells that need the free T3 and too much reverse T3 gets in the way!
Avatar n tn Having symptoms for a couple years now & getting a little worse over time.

5583808 tn?1370393031 You could ask your doctor for a trial dose, just to see if it helps your symptoms, which all indicate hypo. For the B12, are you taking oral supplements or shots? What were your actual B12 results? Some of us don't absorb B12 adequately (pernicious anemia), so oral supplements don't work well. You should also get checked for insulin resistance and PCOS, both of which can make weight loss difficult to impossible.
967168 tn?1477588089 leg to where I've burned my hand while cooking and my leg sometimes where I fall or can't walk, so I went to see if she could yield some answers.

Avatar f tn People who have diabetes, pre diabetes or glucose intolerance, will pee more if their blood sugar levels are too high, but at the same time, they will experience more thirst and will drink more. Sometimes there is a burning sensation when you pee, sometimes with a bladder infection called Cystitis, you will feel a discomfort in the lower belly. You may notice your urine may be cloudy, you may see visible blood (but not always), the urine may smell very strongly.
9470507 tn?1404224399 And when I had hyperthyroidism, this worsened my insulin resistance and I also developed impaired glucose intolerance (pre diabetes) due to too much thyroid hormone messing with the pancreas (or something lol).
Avatar f tn Some women experience less symptoms after child birth (called reset) but they still have pcos, just no symptoms. Unassisted pregnancy is possible, many women have pcos and never find out because they conceive without assistance.
Avatar n tn She has no drainage, not even a sniffle. A week later symptoms are still there and she has now missed 2 weeks of school so I call back and suggest blood work, all of it comes back normal. He says he hears a lot of noise from her bowels/stomach so she should see a gastroenterologist. He thinks possible abdominal migraines with an anxiety componant attached due to vomiting at school infront of friends etc. After talking to the gastro doc my ped.
Avatar f tn They have checked me for Lupus (that was fine) and I haven't done a 2 hour glucose since my first pregnancy (which was VERY low!), but they did run a blood glucose which was fine. I finally got a phone call from the last endo I saw and she said my cortisol levels are fine (don't know the numbers) and I asked her about the anti-tpo results. She said all that means is that eventually I will become hypo. No one knows when and it's a useless test and wished the other doc had never done it.
Avatar n tn I've also had what appear to be other neuro symptoms throughout this pregnancy, so I am worried about a tumor. However I did have non contrast MRI that checked out neg. 5 weeks ago. What do you think of this and I am still curious as to what blood stasis in cerebral artery is?
Avatar n tn my pregnancy was text book until i went for the twelve weeks glucose tolerence test in which i was diagnosed with gestational diabetes, which is not uncommon in pregnancy. Still all went well. Because i had developed diabetes though i now had to watch my sugar intake, so i was sent to see the diabetic nurse to monitor my progress in the pregnany.
Avatar m tn Hi everyone, In June I finally went to the doctor, 6 months after giving birth to my second child. During that pregnancy, I gained 70 lbs even though I was eating healthy and being active. After delivery, I lost 40 lbs and even with nursing, I starting gaining, I gained 20 lbs for no reason.
335728 tn?1331418012 I have complained in the past about these cold sweats that I have been having which also included light headedness and nausea. Well this afternoon I had an "attack" of these symptoms and I am wondering if anyone here has ever had to deal with Hypoglycemia. My symptoms were again the cold sweats, light headedness, high anxiety (breathing pace increased and felt almost out of breath) and nausea.
215461 tn?1331866365 Another thing to remember is that symptoms of hyper and hypo can duplicate each other; maybe it would be helpful if you post a list of your more prevalent symptoms; that might help us a bit, too.. Again, will look forward to the latest round of tests, along with reference ranges.
Avatar f tn These episodes would come and go and I was told it was probably due to my pregnancy. I delivered my daughter by c-section and 2 days later I took only what I can describe as a 'funny turn' and the above symptoms came back again. I was told this was probably hormonal, (now I think this was a hypoglycemic episode) . Most symptoms cleared but I generally felt tired and groggy, and put this down to having 3 young children.
Avatar n tn A few weeks ago, I started experiencing severe abdominal distention (about the size of a 6 month pregnancy) shortly after I ate and continuing for a few hours. It also keeps me up at night, because I also get severe stomach cramps, that mostly occur in the mid to upper right quadrant, but do "move around" to different areas. For example, I'll get a cramp on my right side, and then suddenly it's a stabbing pain on my left lower side, etc.
