I have been diagnosed as hypothyroid. My symptoms are numerous and I will list them as they first appeared years ago: fatigue, facial hair growth - fine fuzz all over, muscle aches, armpit hair loss, dry skin, worsening fatigue, scalp hair loss and eyebrow hair loss, EXTREME scalp hair loss & breakage, EXAUSTION, rapid weight gain, depressed? Just no desire to do anything but not weepy. Synthroid .025 mg for about 4 mos and t3for a week have made little difference. Still gaining weight at alarming rate and eating about 600calories (healthy cals. Lean protein and thecright veggies- done my research) and hair loss is astounding! Should I be changing the thyroid med to a desicated thyroid? Is the amount way too low? I know that Doctors r often afraid of high doses of the thyroid hormone? What do I do next! I want my old body and active life back!!!! This one is hell:(. HELP!

I have been experiencing this type of hair loss for 9 months now. Blood tests for Iron deficiency and thyroid are normal. I have undergone treatment from a dermatologist which included monthly visits for Kenalog injections and use Clobetesal nightly. I did not have an appointment this month as the thought was it may be my last affected area. Now I have 5 bald patches ranging in size from a nickel to half-dollar. It is thought that it is due to emotional stress as my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer last January and these spots started to appear the following March. My husband is undergoing chemo with little to not side effects and the treatment will add years to his life, so one would think I would no longer be stressed, I am grateful for that. I just don't know why these are still appearing and should I consider another method of treatment. I plan to schedule another appointment with my dermatologist and I am not sure what to ask for. Could you give me some alternative choices that I may be able to ask him about? I appreciate you being there. Thank you. Claudia Crowe

Hi, I am 34 years old and have 3 kids. Since my youngest, my 3 year old was born I have been losing hair. But recently it is too much and my hair is so thin now and brittle. I checked my thyroid and its 4.17. Is that too high or could it be a hormonal imbalance?
