whenever i have a relapse, i gain weight real fast, about 20-25 in one month, then when i feel better, i lose it real easy with no change in diet or exercise. I'm always on the thin side, but not too thin, unless I'm in relapse mode. My doctors have said my thyroid tests are normal, but I did not have a CFS/FM speacialist, just a Family practitioner. isn't there a special thyroid test for CFS/FM patients, a newer one. What's it called? Hopefully I'm going to find a CFS/FM specialist soon that I can get to. Also, can a person have "mild" Addison's disease and NOT have that suntanned skin look, because I have almost all symptoms of Addision's except I'm not losing weight, I've gained. I think I read a person can have mild Addison's along with hypothyroid? I'm so confused and I read things on the internet about medical stuff and can't really make sense of it all. Can someone direct me to a web page on this website or another one that lists all the tests that should be done for CFS/FM, all the blood, urine, and x-rays I should get??
