Hello, I've just been diagnosed with an overactive thyroid by my gp, been feeling rotten for weeks. Nearly fell down the stairs last week, so decided that I needed to see the doctor as something was definitely wrong. To be honest I didn't know much about this disease, but, I'm sure getting well acquainted with it now. Anyway, I wanted to ask if anyone has a problem with their skin, I seem to be really itchy all over my body, especially at night, is this normal with thyroid problems or is it something else. Thanks.
