My older sister is convinced I have underactive thyroid but my doctor wont do anything as hes convinced I don't as i am too young .
My dad had three thyroid stormss before he was diagnosed and my sister developed myxedema before she was diagnosed at 25.
Im almost 23 and I've got many symptoms my sister thinks is linked as its how she started.
The first was sudden weight gain. Approx a stone and a half in 6 weeks yet i eat very healthy. Theres been no change in my diet or exercise.
Around the same time thr following symptoms started.. loss of eyebrows, my joints swellinf up and have arthritis like pain, skin pigmentation. I've also gone on to more recently suffering with a sore throat that feels like ive been straining my throat. Breathlessness in certain positions and it feels like my heart skips and anxiety attacks. My periods have also become irregular which is abnormal for me.
Does anyone else agree. Should I push t be tested?
