Dr appt Tuesday

I have a dr appt Tuesday. I think my thyroid is out of whack. I had post Partum thyroiditis after my first son was born, and I think it's back again. I have hair coming out in thick strands in the shower, I'm exhausted all the time, irritable...

And the most recent development has been the buffalo hump. I noticed it about a year ago, but I thought it was because my boobs are so heavy/big. Upon further reasearch I am concerned that i have Cushing Syndrome. I've had all the symptoms at one time or another in the last year :-/

It's painful. I can't lay flat on my back, it is hard to the touch as well :-/

Good Luck at your appt. I had thyroid issues last year and ended up having to have my right thyroid removed in August. I hope things go better for you.
