Thyroid problem? I've noticed my toenails have literally fallen off from the bed without trauma. Also my fingernails are lifting from the bed as well

Thyroid problem? I've noticed my toenails have literally fallen off from the bed without trauma. Also my fingernails are lifting from the bed as well

You nailed it.: There are a multitude of conditions that can cause toenails to become brittle, thickened, break off and even lift off from the nail bed. Both hypo and hyper thyroidism are included in the list of conditions. Of course, there are a whole lot of other symptoms associated with both of these conditions. If you feel that you might have a thyroid condition you should follow up with your family doctor.

And not have a webbed neck, small fingernails and deformed elbows?

And not have a webbed neck, small fingernails and deformed elbows?

Turner's syndrome?: The first half of the question is missing, so I'm going to guess that you're asking, is it possible to have turner's syndrome without the characteristics you listed? The answer is yes, not all women with ts have the physical signs of webbed neck, odd fingernails or "deformed" elbows. If that was not your question, please re-ask it, and include the first half.

Does your thyroid cause your finger nails to look bad?

Does your thyroid cause your finger nails to look bad?

It might: Thyroid diseases such as hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism may cause brittle nails or splitting of the nail bed from the nail plate (onycholysis), I must say that nail changes are more commonly associated with hyperthyroidism (graves' disease).

I was laying on my chest and when I got up, I poked myself in my neck with my fingernail. I have this obsessive thought that I poked my jugular vein.

I was laying on my chest and when I got up, I poked myself in my neck with my fingernail. I have this obsessive thought that I poked my jugular vein.

Relax: Unless you are bleeding massively from your neck you did not. The vein is protected by quite a bit of tissue that make it difficult to get to unlike the portrayals on the current TV shows.

What could this be? Swollen node I can palpate easily, feels small, half finger nail maybe. Maybe posterior cervical? Right side back base of my neck

What could this be? Swollen node I can palpate easily, feels small, half finger nail maybe. Maybe posterior cervical? Right side back base of my neck

Posterior cervical ב: Nodes generally originate from SCALP lesions which may not be noticeable (except for itching). Mild infections occur which are drained by those lymph nodes in the "rear" of your neck! Hope this helps Dr Z

How does mdma affect hashimoto thyroidism?

How does mdma affect hashimoto thyroidism?

?: No established direct effect, but such deleterious drug isn't expected to be of any benefit in any condition, including psychiatric illness claimed by some to be of value, do yourself, or the person you're asking on his/her behalf, a favor, and get treated right in a detox program, good luck

Done an sgpt test and it says on the result that mine is 66 (ref: 9.00-52 u/l (h). Do I need to worry? I am drinking ptu (propylthiouracil) for my thyroidism continuously

Done an sgpt test and it says on the result that mine is 66 (ref: 9.00-52 u/l (h). Do I need to worry? I am drinking ptu (propylthiouracil) for my thyroidism continuously

PTU (propylthiouracil) and liver: Drugs like ptu (propylthiouracil) and Methimazole can cause liver toxicity but hyperthyroidism can also cause elevation int the liver enzyme test you had done. If your still early in your treatment and your thyroid hormone levels (free t4) is still high it could be that. Hope this helps.
