Hello, and merry Christmas all.
I have a question for you all , it is Xmas time and I can't get to the doctors with what is bothering me, and then I don't like to bother the doc at this time of year due to there being lots of winter ill people all crowding in after the holidays.
Anyway, about me, I'm a 33 year old female, I have been feeling rotten for a long while, very tired and very achy all over. Went to see the doc and he said do more exercise (which is hard when you hurt)
Google searches all pointed towards fibromyalgia, the tired , the aching, the brain fogs, but I was still lost, and feeling rotten.
So, last evening I was in the pub with a friend and she commented on some bald patches on my head, now I know there's been a lot of hairs in my bath but I didn't realise it was so noticeable, and it is now I look. I feel rather upset, gutted and rather un-womanly
Thanks if you've read this far.
I began thinking of thyroid probs, my 2 sisters and my brother (now deceased) all have had hypothyroidism.
I did have my TSH checked about 10 years ago due to suffering from depression and it was normal. Do you think I should ask for another test? Can it develop over time.
I seem to have developed a red dry blotchy rash on my face and Im onstantly going for wees, and my eyes are dry, I don't know if that's anything to do with thyroid but I just need to vent. I don't feel right, I know something is wrong, I wish I knew what.
