Hey, Im a 25 year old male. I have been having symptoms of hypothyroidism and a few of hyperthyroidism, such as cold hands and feet, sensitivity to cold, dry skin, I never sweat even when exercising, low heart rate ( 52 BPM resting) but also have social anxiety and nervousness. I recently had a blood test done at a near by lab for cheap. TSH     1.580 Thyroxine (T4)     8.2 ug/dL T3 Uptake     35% Free Thyroxine Index     2.9 Do you see any problems there? I can t go to a doctor because i have no health insurance and have no money. I also read that hypothyroidism can play a part in delayed puberty. I didn t see any development until i was 16/17 and still look very young and feel underdeveloped. Is there anything else that could cause these symptoms? Should I get more blood work done?

Hi, I am having all the symptoms of underactive thyroid but my blood results have been returned 3 times as OK. However, visiting doctor again he examined my neck and told me I had a goiter and would take more bloods, I am feeling really ill and should also mention that I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and see a Rheumatologist twice a year. Could this result in my having an operation and after start to feel better and loose weight? Thank You

I am a 46 year old female. I have hypothyroidism. I take 0.137 mg of Synthroid. I was recently diagnosed with a low red blood cell count for which I am being tested with a blood stool sample, MRI, liver check and a possible bone marrow sample. I have missed 3 periods when except for 4 years ago when I missed 2 in a row. Prior to these 2 incidents I have never ever missed a period. 2 pregnancy tests have determined that I am not pregnant. Do you have any advice or can you help by giving me any information on what could be happening in my body. Thank you...Dianna

I am hypothyroid but my thyroid is stable. My medication was increased slowly over a 2 month period and my symptoms are finally diminishing after years of struggling with problems. My hair is falling out, though like it did when my thyroid was not balanced. Is it possible that I m shedding due to something else like psychotropic medications etc.? I ve been taking them for years and never had a problem until my thyroid became abnormal. I am 45 and my menses is normal and regular. I am losing at least 3 times more hair than normal for me. I am graying and color my hair but have been doing it for years and this hair loss seemed to come all of a sudden and started before I had a color treatment. I m lost. Is it true that there is a 3 year shedding and loss period.
