Unhappy Help

Hello everyone

My sister was diagnosed with hypothyroid about 5 years ago. She doesn't take any medicine for it. I don't know if this has anything to do with the thyroid problem but for about 3 months now shes had this skin discoloration on her throat and its really scaring me. It looks like someone took black eyeshadow and put it on her throat in the center about 4 inches long, up and down. She has an appt with the Dr next week. But I'm worried till then. Does anyone know what this could be? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...

Thank you

Re: Help

I'm not sure what the black mark could be but I gotta ask why isn't she taking medication? Its a life long thing. Just curious about that. It is scary but I hope she will get her answers next week. The best thing is try not to worry(I know easier said than done)Good luck to her and you...

Re: Help

Hi HondaDoll,

I would have her Dr. to check for Addison's Disease. The same discoloration on the neck is what I had before I was diagnosed...I also have a thyroid problem . I am on the right medications and have been feeling great!

Good Luck!
