Hi, over the last 6 months I have been in and out of the hospital and doctors. It started with a huge build up of non bacterial fluid in my breast for no apparent reason. No one seemed concerned as to why this had happened and just (excruciatingly) drained it. when it happened again breast cancer was ruled out but no further diagnosis. I changed GP as again I had no answers. the new gp gave a full blood work up which was flagged up at the hospital as potential hypothyroidism but nothing else. The gp said it may have been raised due to the inflammation in my breast and to do the bloods again in 4 weeks. the next test showed at
and despite me saying i was sleeping for 15 hours a day and having had lost about a 3rd of my hair over the last year she still said i was wasnt hypothyroid and she would do a test in 3 months. she blamed the symptoms maybe due to my breast and maybe another underlying problem.
In the mean time the breast issue was diagnosed as Hidradenitis Suppurativa an autoimmune inflammatory disorder. which I cant help think will be exacerbated by such a low thyroid. Plus both my mother and sister have had almost lifelong battles with their thyroid ...so wouldn't being on thyroid medication now help with both that just snowballing like my family members and the HS? But I cant force her to give me meds and I don't want to change gps again?
