Thyroid problems and LS?

Posted , 10 users are following.

I've got an appointment with a dermatologist coming up, but not until June.  However, I've been reading that LS is often linked to thyroid problems.  I have problem with temperature - frequent flushing and then feeling very cold, even when others are warm.  I also suffer from fatigue.  How common is thyroid problems with LS?

    Hi Cheetah,

    how Are you doing?

    you can ask for a check.  I felt the same and had it done in a way I wanted it to be thyroid as I feel like you but it wasn't it came back in the markers ok, sometimes in a way it would be easier to diagnose if it came back wrong this menopause stuff is hard.

    Well both thyroid and ls are thought to be related to auto immune problems.   If you have one auto immune problem you are likely to get up to about 7 more apparantly.

    Thank you all very much.  I will definitely mention it when I see the consultant.  I don't have any other auto-immune diseases - arthritis, but osteoarthritis - but I do have fibromyalgia and rosacea.  Thanks again for your replies.

    Yes Cheetah, as others have already said. Autoimmune conditions such as underachieve thyroid

    Often go hand in hand with LS. I was on Levothyroxine long before I was diagnosed with LS and

    Have a skin condition called Morphia which is also an autoimmune condition.

    Fortunately these conditions are usually manageable and you shouldn't worry too much about them.

    LS is the one you want to consents on. Good luck with it all.

    I don't have thyroid problems, my LS started when I started going thru menopause. I don't have any other auto immune issues.

    I have Ls and my thyroid is fine, Research say LS is linked to autoimmune system.

    It does sound like you are having problems with your thyroyid, however, I don't think the LS is because of your thyroid.
