Thanks for your reply about this darn skin. I have had many thyroid tests done, yet my PCP says I'm "normal". HA! (you can see my first post "Exhausted and Confused Newbie" 04/14/11). That was my question; Can this dry skin issue be caused by hypothyroidism. It is encouraging to hear your skin improved once you were diagnosed and treated.
. Eventhough I have been sick for over 2 years with so many hypo symptoms, with tests to back them up, no dx or treatment yet. DUH!. Guess it's time I start looking for a new doctor.
I find everyone on this board to be so helpful and generous with information. It's really a God-send for me to find such kind support while I'm on this lousy journey. I am exhausted, frustrated and my cracked fingers really hurt.
Thanks again for your input. Much appreciated
P.S. I have too many pets too. Cats - three.
