I found your wonderful community just before I go in for a blood test on Tuesday this week!
My situation - I have had a lot of stress since last one year (the stress is now much less for the last one month). I started losing my hair since Oct of last year and it has been relentless - my scalp hurts and itches where I lose hair. I also had memory problems, couldn't find words from my vocabulary, poor sleep, cold hands and legs, mild itching on my body. My weight has been stable.
My GP did my menopause blood and referred me to Gynaecologist - I am now taking estrogen and progesterone (HRT). This has improved the thickness of my hair but my hair loss never stopped.
I went to see a dermatologist but she did not prescribe a Thyroid test - please can you suggest what thyroid test should I ask for? Could this be thyroid?
