so, i have lost about 15 pounds in 2 years. my hair is falling out, and thin. my skin is thin too. i sometimes have diarrhea and am irregular sometimes. i also have this little tremor like thing in my fingers, sometimes i can hear my heartbeat in my head, i don't sleep well and i have bad anxiety and irritability.
today, i read the symptoms of a HYPER thyroid....all of those were on the list. 

has anyone ever had HYPER thyroid, not HYPO?   i will have my blood work checked when i see my dr this summer, but it makes me wonder if that is maybe what i have...

my sisters all have hypothyroid, not hyper...
anyway, just wondered....not worried, but thought maybe it could explain my weightloss

You could probably just go to your local hospital and get it blood tested. It's just a walk in 2 minute blood draw. I had a prescription written for mine, that way the insurance will cover it.... but you might be able to set it up with your insurance card there. I didn't even have to pay a co-pay, but that might be because I got a script through my psychiatrist.

I'd get it checked out, I had results back the next morning.

Sometimes, when I'm home alone, I fill my bathtub with tomato sauce and pretend I'm a meatball.
