I went to my dr this morning with these symptoms: palpitations, extremely weak fingernails with ridges, hair breakage, weightgain, tingling in my upperback, and the ugliest, itchiest raised red rash on both legs, hips and lower back. After looking at me like I was insane, he put in paperwork for labs in the morning to check my thyroid and blood glucose. Is there anything else he should be looking for? Thanks.
