Thank you... I've had tests for PCOS and a scan revealed that I had uterine cysts but not PCOS, so no-one has ever done anything for me. When I was first diagnosed as hyperthyroid, I was give Carbimazole (long-term), Aspirin and Propanalol (for a while) and all facial hair disappeared for a month.... but doctors have never taken any notice of that. I was told by one that it was a cosmetic problem and he couldn't help.
Skin problems started some time later following the thyroidectomy and being switched to Levothyroxine. To my knowledge, I have never been given any T3 at all. I have had high(isn) cholesterol since I started suffering from thyroid problems but am not diabetic.
I have a fasting blood test this Monday because I am showing symptoms or Hypo at the moment and have asked for a referral with Dr. S at Colchester General Hospital, so I'm not sure what else I can do right now.
Thyroid rules my life at times and I hate it! Suffering for years on end has made me stronger though and if they still insist it's not linked to thyroid, then I need answers as to what it is linked to and what can be done to help.
