| | HypoThyroid
I think I have hypothyroidism but my labs say everything is normal. My doctor is dismissive of the symptoms I'm having saying they aren't related to what my labs state. He did say my estrogen was a little low, but I'm menopausal. My other symptoms are very cold nose and hands that last several hours at a time. Some times the cold nose happens while I am having a hot flash. Kept record for 1 week of my metabolic temperature which registered 97.5 down to 93.0 brrrrrr!!!! It fluctuates wildly throughout the day. I can't loose weight and I assure you I don't overeat. My ankles swell a lot after sitting all day at work. I know plenty of women who weigh more than me who sit all day long and their ankles don't swell, so what's causing this? I've had my heart tested and it's fine. I've lost most of my eyebrows, my hair is turning grey and yes I am freaking out about all of this because I eat healthy, mostly organic vegetables, little meat, drink lots of green tea and no coffee, take my vitimans.
I think I do have hypothyroidism and was wondering if I take desiccated bovine thyroid tablets that I ordered online, will that help my symptoms improve or just make my situation worse? Anybody know????
