I have a lot of symptoms...cold hands, cold nose, dandruff, hate getting out of bed, nervousness, dry skin, low energy, swingy moods, had very bad muscle soreness last winter..
I seem to be fine during the summer but during the cooler/dryier months my symptoms go crazy.
And i've always had dry eyes...ever since I was in elementary school I can remember being miserable trying to keep my eyes open in school. I was never cold as a child...these symptoms arrived in the past year or so. But my eyes have always been on fire. Especially when the outdoor humidity goes down. I usually just blame my dry eyes on allergies but i've never been diagnosed.
Could I have had a bad thyroid from a very young age?
Diet (VLC last winter..very high energy & a lot of weight loss. Hit a wall and symptoms returned worse than ever.) Now I eat higer carbs...fruit in moderation, chicken, eggs, fish, bacon, lots of veggies (blamed my VLC crash initially on oxalic acid), olive oil, coconut oil, and potatoes.
I know the obsious answer is..."go to a doctor." But I just want to see how convincing my case is. And i'm not living at home rigth now so i wouldnt be able to see my doctor till December anyway.
