I have been directed here by some lovely people over on the pernicious anaemia forum.
In September I was diagnosed with a b12 deficiency and was giving two weeks of shots. I felt better for a while, then I went downhill again, but something else started happening too, my eyebrows started falling out, my left eyebrow was first and I put it down to the fact I always lie on that side when I sleep.
Then my hair started feeling thinner and thinner, within weeks I have half the volume of the hair I used to have and now my right eyebrow is shedding hairs like crazy.
I printed out the hypothyroid symptom list and ticked over half the boxes. I went back to my doctors last night, armed with my check list and the doctor didn't even look at it, she said my hair loss was down to the 'normal hair cycle' and asked if I was stressed, I explained I wasn't stressed until my hair started to fall out and she just shrugged and said that the NHS do not cover hair loss, so she can't do anything.
I told her I know something is wrong with me and she reluctantly has put in for a full thyroid check, despite the fact she kept showing me the last few blood tests said it was completely normal. I went for the blood test this morning.
I am worried that the blood test will come out as 'normal' again and I am just going to be left feeling terrible and with no hair to boot.
I have tried attaching my last blood results on this post but it keeps coming up with 'whoops, there was a problem uploading your image' but I can say my serum TSH level is 2.
If anyone can offer any advice, I would be very grateful.
