By chance I was viewing a Dr Berg video , the one that lists symptoms for nutrient deficiencies. As Im always interested in nutrition, I thought this one would be useful.
A few minutes in he is talking about nail ridges, which I have asked my doctor about once but got the brush off. Normal. But Dr Berg processed to give a long list of symptoms of which I have all but one ( maybe-- hard to tell what is hair loss, as some hair loss is normal)
verticle nail ridges--
loss of collagen, back of arms flappy
bags below eyes
loss of hair at outer part of eye brow
rough scaley itchy skin
of corse when I found this area of our forum, I am finding MORE issues.
I have been treating these as individual issues, but given my medical history I made an appointment to see my primary.
Appointment is today.
SHe is a dunce at best.
And why am I supposed to be the one convincing doctors I have a problem.
Well since that is the case I am trying to go into this well armed.
I have a list of symptoms, and to ask for the FT3 and FT4, as the TSH is run annually and is clearly not catching this.
I apologize as I will run between angry and trying to find the light hearted side just to keep my spirits up. BUt I am so ready to get a dammit doll for every doctor that I deem is worthy of one.
