Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board


I have an appointment with another doctor tomorrow for a second opinion. I was diagnosed hypo about 6 - 8 months ago. My doctor started me on Synthroid and after a few adjustments, stopped the meds all together. I am still experiencing symptoms. My biggest concern right now is the hair loss. My eyelashes and brows are falling out at an alarming rate. I am noticing some hair loss from my head, but that does not seem to be too bad yet thankfully. My doctor has suggested that I see another doctor for a second opinion. My question is what should I be asking at this appointment? The only test that has ever been done is my TSH. What other test should I request to have done? I'm planning on listing every complaint I have tomorrow. I just want to make sure I have everything covered.
