My Doctor states this is fine even though I have thyroid systems - hair falling out, dry skin, tired, forgetfullness, etc. I had a partial thyroidectomy in 2000 for a goider and was hyperthyroid. Are these lab results ok, or should I see an Endocrynologyst?

I have been having random problems lately but have just pushed it off as hormonal changes and not thought anything about it until recently. I m 20 years old and my moods have been through the roof. I can be laughing and extremely happy one day and biting someone s head off the next. This has all occurred recently. I m not bipolar, etc. My period was 9 days late this month and lighter than normal. Its usually extremely heavy. It ended Friday and yesterday I ended up in the ER with extreme tachycardia and tingling in both arms with 3 near-syncope episodes. Doctors pushed it off as anxiety yet I ve been out of school for 2 months and under zero stress. I ve also gained 30 pounds in the last 6 weeks and i exercise and eat healthy CONSTANTLY. I know this all sounds random but I know there is something going on. Thyroid levels are perfect so I m leaning toward PCOS or low progesterone. Any suggestions or thoughts as to whats going on?
