I am 43 years of age. My general symptoms are below...I want to know if these are possibly related to thyroid?
I have had excessive facial hair growth my whole life.
For 15 years I have had hyperpigmentation which is sensitive to light exposure. This occured after a pregnancy and has never gone away.
I had some fertility testing done at age 39 that showed high FSH in day 3,5.
3 years ago, when I sought laser hair removal, the nurse noticed my facial pigmentation pattern and suggested I talk to an endocrynologist about my thyroid. A visit to an endocyrnologist did not turn up nything "abnormal" for thyroid number although they said I had "slightly elevated testosterone".
One year ag, I had total, sudden loss of libido. So finally at age 43, I finally decided to revisit to the endocryonolgist. A restest of my testosterone shows it is now a third of what it had been. I started testosterone injections 3 months ago and libido is returning.
I have missed my period. Home pregnancy test is negative.
I had some slight eye puffiness two weeks ago....I though it was related to the laster hair removal, but that was almost 4 weeks ago and I woke up this morning with additonal puffiness in the mask area around my eyes and my eyelids. Double bags under the eyes.
I have always run cold - although I've been feeling warmer lately.
My skin has always been on the dry side.
I have never had much energy. I can usually fall asleep if I just lay down.
I am frequently constipated.
