Hi, any help would be appreciated.
my issues have been going on for over a year now.
i was diagnosed with pcos in July 2013, albeit mildly and put on metformin.
In April 2014, I started 3 cycles of clomid to make me ovulate. This didn't work and resulted in 3 very heavy periods, more so than normal.
in October 2014, my hair started falling out and not regrowing. This has not stopped or slowed down. My hair is so very thin and balding all over.
combined with this, I've had bad aches, lethargy and brain fog etc.
Bloods in October 2014, showed tsh was 1.8, ferretin 21, b12 792 and no other issues. I was put on iron tablets which I have been on since. In July 2015 ferretin was retested and was at 99!
vit d was tested and high end of the range.
i was retested in March 2015 for full thyroid. Tsh 1.8, free t3 4.4, free t4 17.7.
i continued with fertility treatment which was unsuccessful.... In my opinion because something with me isn't right.
i saw a dermatologist who said I have androgenetic alopecia and chronic telegen effluvium..... This is don't believe as its all over loss and would be regrowing in the areas which aren't affected by the androgens..... The sides and bottom.
About 8 weeks ago the hair loss massively increased and it's now so desperately thin. I lose in excess of 50-80 hairs a day, which is not what I was like over a year ago!!
along with this, my energy has nose dived. 11hrs sleep a night is required all the time. My brain fog is worse than ever. I forget what I'm saying mid sentence and I've been aching and freezing cold.
i was retested this month and my tsh was 1.9, free t 3 5.0, free t4 19.4. Yet again "normal"
everything screams hypothyroid but I'm not! Endocrinologist said I was fine!
