i was diagnosed hypo in dec 11 and my TSH was 19.7 then.i was unwell and it took a good 8 months to get some semblence....my partner was also doing well with his cancer and asked me to marry him.We did this last dec on my 49th birthday after i went on the hairy bikers diet and also started to run again.The horrid weight i had gained came off steadliy and i went from 11 2 at my worst to today 9 5.I was feeling great until a few weeks ago...My bloods were done dc 6th and were normal..7 but something is now really going off key.My hair is falling out and feeling very dry,my skin is flaky,my lovely nails are soft again but its the weird cold thing going on with my hands that scares me.I get cold unrealistcaslly fast and then my hands go into spasm and two fingers and thumb go white and numb!
it hurts and i dont like it.
I bet the docs are reluctant to do my bloods as they are not due until dec and i am unsure if its something else like Raynards..
