I don't even know if this is even the right section..
I'm a 26 year old male. A tad bit (20ish pounds) overweight but I do work out and walk miles every day. My family has a history of hyperthyroidism and heart disease. The only medications I take are 20mg Adderall XR 2x a day, once when I wake up, the other at noon. Around midnight I go to bed and take 2x Benadryl to help me breathe better.
Issue #1: For the last 2 years any tiny bit of bending over or walking when theres no airflow in the room causes me to sweat super heavy from my head. I mean heavy heavy. I use my sleave to wipe it off and its soaked. This is really embarrassing at work. :(
Issue #2: I keep waking up with my face swelling up slowly and then all of a sudden I feel like im being choked and for about 2-3 minutes I have to struggle to breathe and then it goes away. I smoke about a half pack a day but I dont think this is smoking related, it feels more like an alergic reaction but the thing is this has been going on every few days or so for awhile now. It doesnt get 911 serious but its still pretty scary
Issue #3: I get itchy at night. Horribly itchy. I scratch one itch, and get another. It never stops, ever. Some nights I'm all up night like right now, and other nights I don't have the issue. I've ruled out bed bugs and scabies and crabs because my wife sleeps in the same bed and she has absolutely zero issues. I have no bite marks and no rash. I have no rough or dry skin other than the bottoms of my feet.
Issue #4: Over the last 2-3 years since this started, I have developed a lazy right eye. I can control it but I have to be paying attention. It also sort of aches off and on.
Issue #5: Over the last 2-3 years I have felt more fatigued. My wife tells me its just me getting older, but it feels like something else.
Issue #6: If I bend my elbows past 90 degrees for too long, my arms go numb and its like a burning numb.
What the heck is wrong with me? Do I have hyperthyroidism? Is it some kind of skin disease or fungus? I'm fed up with this!
It sounds like some if not all of your symptoms could be hyperthyroidism, specifically the sweating, fatigue, and even the itching. Eye problems and nerve issues can also be associated with thyroid problems. Some people even gain weight (because it can make you *super* hungry!) while other people lose weight because it switches their metabolism into overdrive--depends on the person. I would go see your doctor right away and get a blood test. It's very simple to diagnose hyperthyroidism and if that's what you have, once you get the right medication dosage, you should start to feel better. You're too young to start to be getting tired from old age.
I would also get your eye checked out by an ophthalmologist to make sure that everything is okay with it (should be covered under medical insurance--call first to make sure they take you insurance, if you have it).
