Please do not take this personal, But are there any Black, african Americans onsite dealing with an underactive thyroid. The reason why I ask is because my hair and skin has changed dramatically and I am wanting to know there experiences and stories on the above. My hair has fallen out turned from long, to short, I have had to shave it! from soft, shiny and silky to course, wiry and just plain old tuff
I have lost a lot of it about 60% going from a full body head to being able to see straight to my scalp.
My skin is dry which I know its usual for all sufferers, but mine is dark, dry, desert like its real ashy!
If there is anyone out I would just like to converse
No disrespect or discrimination to anyone, although I do know some people who have a thyroid problem, such as my mother, she did not have much of any of the symptoms, and still has all her hair on her body and overall health. I am 29 bedridden and basically feel stripped of myself in and out and my womanity!
