  • Why don't you make an appointment with a doctor and have them run tests? We can't help if we don't know your overall health assessment.

  • then if that is the case, If you were the doctor and I went to you complaining of dry skin, losing hair, cold intolerance, feels muscles are shaking, gets choke often whenever eating, losing appetite but still gains weight -- What could you ask more? and what Laboratory exam would you indicate? I had my T3, T4 and TSH done a month and a half ago and reveals normal though the T3 and TSH i think were a close to below the normal range. What else do you thinks should I undergo to get the right diagnosis. We do have a family history of hypothyroidism.

  • >dry skin, losing hair, cold intolerance, feels muscles are shaking, gets choke >often whenever eating, losing appetite but still gains weight -- What could I might order a CT of the brain to rule out the possibility of any tumors or changes that could explain the issue. Or, an MRI, with specific focus on the pitutiary gland and hypothalamuse. Have you had your hormones tested? It is possible your endocrine system is off balance and so you have these symptoms. Did you mention to the doctor about the history of hypothyoridism? In addition to the CT and/or MRI of the brain, you may also want to ask about expanding the region to the neck as well to look at the thyorid. Sometimes people have cysts and things on their thyroid that cause all kinds of bizarre symptoms.
