I've been a Lyme success story for over 6 years. Had gone back to "normal" with work, working out, raising family.

Not really having any issues...until...about 8 weeks ago. Started hormone replacement therapy and...had to get injections in my knee (synvisc) for mobility.

All of a sudden...I started with this dry feeling in fingernails, freezing cold hands/feet, tinnitus, sensitive teeth, headache, fatigue....aarrgghhh.

Thyroid tests are normal. No new tick bite that I know of. I feel like it is related to adrenal fatigue, but why? Did the injections stir the pot?

Just made an appointment with LLMD today. It feels Lyme related to me. Any advice or suggestions are welcomed. Lymetoo I hope you remember me friend! [Smile] [hi]

Hi, Geneal. Can you ask the doc if some type of steroid or other immune suppression med was added to your injection?

I would start with that question. If so, that can be enough to bring back the lyme.

I asked prior to the shots; it is Hyaluronic Acid which is made from a rooster's comb. According to my ortho, there was no steroid addition to the shot.
I would have rather been lame then to think I opened the door to this disease again. Thanks for the response. [Smile]

Is your thyroid LOW NORMAL, by chance? Sure sounds like thyroid.

Swollen thyroid with nodules found last week. Scheduled for a biopsy on one nodule that is large enough to aspirate. Doctor didn't seem too worried (I am of course) and....blood work was normal for thyroid. 1.95 for TSH and 6.8 for T4. I thought thyroid too.

Did you have your free's tested? I was on here for years under another name, and was not able to remember it to get back in here.

I am currently dealing with something similar and trying to decipher if it is ONLY thyroid

No free's but I have only been dealing with Ob and now, Endo. I dug deep and made an appointment with LLMD. Been so long, I am considered a "new" patient. I've been looking at symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue and match a lot of them. I hope we both get this figured out soon.

Hey there. Sorry you are feeling not right again. I would highly recommend a website called Stopthethyroidmadness.

I've finally become thyroid disease educated. Buried under all the lyme & co was a very mistreated hypothyroid illness.

This site will help you understand the so called "normal" thyroid testing and the truth about it. Adrenal info is also included on this site.

I thought about yeast too. I appreciate the info and I will go research more. Hopefully the biopsy will be normal and I can go after whatever it is..Time to get a Rx. for diflucan. [Smile]

Sorry you are dealing with this. There is a lot of good advice here.

Definitely get your Free T3, Free T4, and thyroid antibodies tested. There is a lot of room to work within the result ranges.

You may find the "Signs and Symptoms: Adrenal Fatigue vs. Low Thyroid Function" chart helpful at http://drrind.com/therapies/metabolic-symptoms-matrix

You seem to be covering all bases which is good. I hope you can figure out what is going on soon.

Synvisc can have significant systemic side effects.

Sounds like the injections affected you.

Responding to the discussion about candida - it can be tested for in blood and stool. If anyone has it and wishes to treat, go slow. I experienced an enormous yeast die-off from just one caprystatin pill. Am saying test a very tiny amount of a yeast treatment.

Another way is to go on a step-down diet - no sugar, but keep fruit for around 10 days, then when the craving for sugar goes down, then drop the fruit and eat a nonyeast diet.

Hey Big G! Nice to see you!

Sorry you are going backwards for some reason. You mentioned you also started hormone replacement therapy about the time you began having problems.

I have no clue why you have those symptoms, but I do know the wrong hormones can make you miserable. REALLY miserable.

I have such a bad reaction to any kind of estrogen there is no doubt that messes me up, but do very well with natural progesterone.

Just don't want to overlook that possibility in your case.

Good to see you, but as TuTu said, not! Hope you are feeling better soon!

Hi Tincup!!!

I am so glad so many of my friends are still here.

I had my nodule on my thyroid aspirated today..no fun.

I should get those results later this week.

I have backed off estrogen..have only been on it for a short time and still have hot flashes.

I am looking into natural progesterone. I am open to all possibilities at this time.

I will let you all know what my biopsy results are.

Hoping to be "well" again.....soon. [Smile]

Because of the timing, I would blame the HRT or the knee injection.

I'm sorry you're feeling bad again. I hope you figure it out quickly.

Good news is the nodule is benign. Thank God. I am working to figure this out fast..working again next week. Good news is that speech process is still intact...bad news is that the anxiety is getting worse. So glad you posted to me Six. [Smile]

YES! That is great news!!

Sorry you had to go thru the "procedure" though. Not fun!

If we can add anything to your search, please let us know. It would be our pleasure to do so! Really!

And anxiety. UGH! When you have more than your share it is hard to remember not having it! Unsettling.

But, we are here, so lettuce help if we can. OK?
