Hi everyone– had my rheumatologist appointment and wanted to update! IUD has been out for two weeks and weight gain/ acne has persisted (even increased), even though they put me on Yaz which is suppose to specifically help w acne.
Rheumatologist was wonderful and actually listened– such a nice change of pace. he thinks I have narcolepsy and I am getting a sleep study on the 1st. he also did more autoimmune tests (more lupus, etc.) as well as measuring protein in urine (once it was high) as well as more tests for anemia.
SO happy to finally have someone listen and acknowledge something is off/ wanting to help and look; however, I’m still convinced this is endochronological due to the acne/ weight gain/ temp weirdness/ fatigue/ vision blurry/ mental fog. Mainly the acne and weight gain is the most prominent endocrinology wise.
I’ve done tests for TSH, T3, T4 twice, but hypo thyroid seems so similar to my symptoms. Is it worth during reverse T3 or is that not worth it? Any other suggestions? He didn’t think scans were necessary/ wasn’t sure how to advise me on endocrinologist front. I tested negative for Cushing’s (spit test) which also would have made a lot of sense.
I cannot thank you all enough for the support. I had no idea I would get such caring and thorough responses– truly warms my heart and I am so grateful.
