Hi Welcome to healthcare Magic

The moles on the face are not related to the thyroxine tab. thyroxine must be taken every morning because it is a harmonal drug, not a single dose must be missed, as it is necessary for daily life... do not get worried.. enjoy..

Hello Dr. Grief I am a 47 year old female, I exercise and eat right. I have white spots on my legs and a few on my arms, although I started noticing them about 10 years ago, over the past 3 to 5 years they are getting progressively worse. I would like to seek treatment, because I do take pride in my appearance and like wearing dresses and shorts ( age appropriate of course). I also have a growing number of moles on my face and other location (legs, arms etc.) but lots on my face. Any advise you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

hi in the past few weeks I have noticed an increase of dark spots and moles on my arms and legs and some on my chest I have one dog spot that seems to have grown in size below a recently appeared mole. this spot seems to be comming of like a scab today even saw white stuff come from it. I even saw another small unexplained scab. On the same arm. I have also been dealing with itchiness though not on the scabs. I have digestive issues and am on medicine for ulcers and constipation. I was hospitalized last month for stomach problems and the E.R. doctor says I may have scaladerma. yesterday I ate a small steak and my stomach acted like it was the 4th of July I never had these kind of digestive issues before to where it would bother me to eat steak. but seeing these spots concern me. I looked up scaladerma symptoms and the only symptoms that seem to match is sysitivity to the cold. off and on sores on my fingers, and now digestive problems. no test has been given on it yet. I also have a history of dry skin. these growing dark spots concern me. my physician won t even get back to me. what could I possibly have? What could this be?

I am 26 years old. Female. & have a couple concerns. Fr a little while now I have been extremely tired. Several months. With that I have EXTREME constipation like 10-20 days with no BM. Also I have gained about thirty pounds in a matter of two months and cannot seem to get it off. I have dark circles under my eyes as well. I have not had a cycle in over two months. I am not pregnant. I had blood work down to look at my thyroid and the TSH was 1.82. My primary said that was normal. My WBC was 4.3 and the RDW was 11.4%. Also my ast 33 and alt 32. I am really tired of being so tired. I generally run a high pulse in the 100s. Can sleep all day. Lately I have developed headaches in the evenings. Three years ago I had a child via cesarian because my blood pressure was too high (don t know I that s relevant)! I just want some help and my doctor doesn t seem to care. Also I supposively have adult ADD. Which I guess contributes to my forgetfulness which is worse as well. Thank you!(also heart disease, cancer, hypertension, thyroid disorders. Are in family hx)

Thanks!I am very tired today and feel like I would like to go to bed....which I never nap in the day. I take blood pressure meds and just took my blood pressure. Not bad. 103/62 with a 65 pulse. I have my own wrist gauge, and an excellent blood pressure program which I log my pressure maybe every other day or so. Gives my doc wonderful readings over a month, 6 months, etc. if he needs them. I have had the band calibrated. Why am I soo tired. I have a cat that is 22 and has hyper-thyroid and that depresses me badly.
