This may have been a question asked before, if so I do apologise.. I am 36, a friend just pointed me to the checklist on the Thyroid UK site.. I have many of the symptoms, but I'm not 40-50..
When I was younger (late teens/early twenties) I had a few ailments I reported to my doctor and back then he must have thought I had Thyroid problems.. I had a blood test (test tubes), to test for Thyroid problems, but I never found out my results, well they never reported back to me.. If there had been a problem with the results, (and it showed I had Thyroid problems) surely they'd have called me back in to discuss the results.. I presumed as they didn't that I was fine..
My hair is falling out and there are significant bald patches developing.. I'm usually very tired.. Etc etc.. (Got most on the checklist) I've just been through a stressful breakup (dumped in the middle of nowhere, had to buy a new house).. I've possibly got BPD.. I've got a 1 inch cyst on my ovary (waiting for the results on that, just had a MRI scan, my mother died of Ovarian Cancer)..
I just wanted confirmation on whether younger women can get it.. And would they still have my results of my old test or would it be worth having a new test?
