Hi all I'm new here and I'm wanting to get some advice and views about my symptoms... Well here goes lol
First of all when I was between the ages of 8-16 I had angeoderma ideoathic (hope I've spelt that right) anyway since having my 2nd child at 23 I'm now 36 I've had an episode maybe 2/3 times a year. I'm led to believe this condition is linked to thyroid disease.
I've also developed vitiligo which initially started about 10 years ago.
Now after having my 3rd child last year I've put on quite a bit of weight almost 3st I'm having under active thyroid symptoms along with the weight gain. Even though I've been excercising and on a low cal and fat diet but my weight hasn't budged in the 3 months of dieting.
My resting heart rate is between 48-54 is this a factor or a cause for concern?
I think I know I have a thyroid problem and have made an appointment to see my doc, but I feel I'm gonna sound like an hyoacondriac listing all the symptoms I'm having. How did you feel the first time you visited the dr? And if my tests come back norm where do I go from there?
My friends mum has hashimoto and she has suggested I get tested for that but what test do I request for that?
Thanks guys xxx
Ps I do have family history of under active thyroid.
