Well, here's my story. I have PCOS and just recently had a D&C for a very long AF. All that went well. Before that, though, my doctor ordered a TSH test. He just called me an hour ago with my results. Normal TSK is 0.2-4.0 and mine is 4.81. So he's sending me to another doctor, since he's an gyno.
Anyway, I had a suspicion that my thyroid was causing problems. Tired, anxiety, sensitivity to temperature, muscle aches, and now, of course my stupid menstrual cycle is goofy. It always was, but this seems different.
My question is about rashes and hives. I've looked everywhere for information on this and now I see that hives and rashes are a symptom of low thyroid. Could you tell me if this happens to any of you with Hypo?
If I take a hot shower, and step out of the shower into a cold bathroom, I'll get hives on my chest and arms. Basically, if my body is warmer than the surrounding area, liek if I go for a walk outside and get warm, but it's cool outside, I'll get the hives. In the past it was just across my chest, but lately I'll get them up my neck and my face and on my scalp! They go away after I sit and cool down for a while. Is THIS the hives/rash that low thyroid people face?
I'm waiting for my first new doctors appointment and must say I'm actually excited about taking control of my life again. I hope to get to know everyone here and be as supportive as you all are to each other. Thank you so much for being here!
