I am hypothyroid and still not yet in normal range (my GP is upping the meds). I stil have drier skin than when I was well, flaky nails etc... Since becoming ill I have developed very noticeable dark circles under my eyes. I have never had a problem with dark circles under my eyes before. They've come on very quickly (in a number of months) and coincide with being diagnosed hypothyroid. Can hypothryoidism cause this?
I have a number of other unexplained health issues still going on (health basically went wrong after a 4 month bout of my mycoplasma pneumonia last year- incl becoming hypothyroid etc) and just trying to work out what might be due to the thyroid and what to other issues.
Please post all your thyroid related test results and reference ranges as shown on the lab report. Also, please have a look at this list of 26 typical hypo symptoms, and tell us about any others you seem to have.
