Hi I'm new on here.
I have an underactive thyroid and been managing it with medication for done years, however since January I've had a rash on my shins that's dry and itchy, inflamed and now sore due to all the itching. It's spread to both shins and now my inner thighs and one arm. I don't sleep that well due to the itching and I bleed due scratching. So fed up 😔 I take antihistamines but they don't do much, had various creams from the docs and that's not worked either. I've finally been referred to the hospital for tests as the GP thinks it could be pritibial myxedema. However my appointment isn't for a few more months yet! I was just wondering if anyone who has had it diagnosed has had these symptoms, what tests they had and how they manage/treat it? It's really getting me down and I just would like to know if there is light at the end of the tunnel?
