Have fatigue, muscle and bone pain, borderline hypothyroidism, fibromyalgia. On synthroid. Had LapBand. Is it cancer related?

Hello, I have been having significant and unusual symptoms. I have extreme fatigue, muscle and bone pain that feels like I worked out for hours the day before, headaches and overall feel miserable. I went to my PCP and she tested my thyroid which put me at borderline hypothyroidism. Im on Synthroid my levels are normal again but my symptoms are getting worse, my doctor suggests Fibromyalgia. I had the LapBand done May 2013 and recently was admitted to the hospital with stomach dilation and distending for 2 days were they unfilled the band. My bloodwork came back showing higher than normal blood platelets(which has been consistently high for a year) and a high level of absolut lymphs and a borderline low neutrophils. I cannot take the pain and fatigue anymore. What does the blood levels show/mean. I really need help,everything I read shows autoimmune or cancer. I do not have any infections like flu,mono etc.... Thanks.

Thanks for writing to us.
The symptoms that you have described could be related to hypothyroidism or fibromyalgia. These are not related to cancer. Your blood reports are also not suggestive of cancer.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
