Thyroid maybe?

*Tired but can't sleep
*dry skin even with constant lotion and increase in water intake
*my toes nails break off big chunks, not like the whole nail but a big corner of the big toe nail will break off if it gets a little long with no effort. It just breaks.
*sore joints, muscles
*I am heavy but always thought I don't eat enough to warrant the weight...

I eat daily:
Breakfast: 4 oz oval-tine, apple, a few bites of DD peanut butter toast
Lunch: 3 chicken breast nuggets big serving of peas and a cheese stick
Dinner: 2 ribs lots of green beans and carrots and a whole zucchini.


What do you think? I know I need to see a doctor but I thought I would get some opinions.

  • Definitely make an appointment to see a doctor. You do not want to take any chances with your health. If you think it could be your thyroid, it is as simple as a blood test to check the functioning. I have all these symptoms, but I have lupus. So really the best thing is to go see a doctor. Good Luck and hugs to you. I know how tough it can be to wonder and worry about what is happening in your body.
