Feel good finally and hair loss stopped

Hello all,

I just wanted to share, maybe it helps someone else. I struggled with feeling right, hair loss and left side throats swelling. I was uncertain if I should keep requesting thyroid increases but I did and I am so glad, I am taking 3 grains naturethroid and my FT4 is usually just above the range but I feel...normal. I thought it might be too much but it isn't, I am very grateful for the advice here.
My hair loss didn't stop and my scalp was starting to show, it was depressing. My testosterone seemed fine - I became very upset and took my shower hair ball to my doc in a ziplock bad (I have a lot of hair and doc seemed dismissive of my hair loss) she was shocked and ordered labs....my testosterone came back high. I am taking 100mg of spironolactone and liquid rogaine. It has been almost 5 months and my hair loss stopped at month 2 and my hair is regrowing now, I have 2 inch long fairly dense hair growing in my balding spots.
I did not think my eyebrows had the hypo thinning but my eyebrows are thicker now too.
I may not be out of the woods yet but things are so much better, I wanted to share. My weight is also very stable and I am eating more (healthy stuff) than I have in decades and not gaining weight, I am really surprised, I keep checking different scales thinking maybe mine is off, lol.
Best to everyone, hope this helps, Kel
