Hey guys, I’m trying to figure this all out.
I was diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome 4years ago, and later discovered it was from a hidden case of Lyme Disease.
But ever since getting sick, my body temperature remains low (96-97F), my sex drive has dropped, I even gained weight when I use to be a twig, I get hypoglycemia symptoms but without low blood sugar, heat intolerance (typical for POTS n Lyme), irregular heartbeats, etc. I also have bad periods, cramps and lightheaded, hot flashy, emotional wreck, dizzy, naseous, etc.
More personally, nipple stimulation use to feel good during sex but now it feels horrible. I got my hormones checked by an endocrinologist and my prolactin levels were very high, and the rest of my hormones (she’s, estrogen, progesterone, etc) remained on the low side. Of course nobody mentioned this was a problem.
Reading into high prolactin levels, I read one cause could be hypothyroidism. I’m not really experiencing fatigue, and my thyroid panels always come back normal (TSH: 1.2, T3 Uptake 30, T4 Total 7.3, Free T4 INDEX: 2.2, T4 Free: 1.2, T3 Free: 3.2, T3 Total: 95, T3 Reverse: 15, and < 1 for antibodies).
I’ve been taking MACA root now daily which helped my arrhythmia and period cramps, but it hasn’t helped everything.
Can anyone shed some light or their opinion/advice?
