Hair loss: I would start by having an evaluation by a dermatologist as he/she will be able to determine the type of hair loss,check for the various causes and give a prognosis about regrowth of hair. In view of your other symptoms, a neurologist could evaluate and order appropriate tests in order to advise and possibly treat you. ...Read more

I've lost over 30 pounds in the last few months because my thyroid meds have been regulated,  how do I tone my sagging skin? In my thighs and arms

Improving Skin Tone: Skin is generally dynamic and can stretch and tighten if it hasn't been damaged. Younger skin contracts best. Thin skin with stretch marks not as much. If there is not improvement in 2-3 months with healthy diet and exercise there are some options. Ex. Exilis, needling, and some laser treatments that do not require surgery. Surgical removal is also an option. ...Read more

Thyroid nodule, upper thigh pain/burning! boil on r.Leg too...Should i go on to the er?

Thyroid nodule, upper thigh pain/burning! boil on r.Leg too...Should i go on to the er?

The ER: Can't help with a thyroid nodule. A lower leg (calf?) boil is unlikely to cause thigh discomfort in the absence of extensive soft tissue infection which would cause skin redness, pain, and fever. Overall, unless you feel acutely ill, visiting your family clinician is likely the best route. ...Read more

Need to examine: It is not feasible to comment on the bruises without examining those. However, you weakness is likely a part of your depression/anxiety. It will sound counter-intuitive, but exercising will relieve both depression and weakness. Start with walking and increase the distance and rigor as tolerated. ...Read more

I have degenerative changes in neck at only 23. Pain in neck, shoulders, and hips and thighs. Dr says mild arthertis. I am worried. ?

First, get a detailed physical with comprehensive blood and urine tests to make sure you don't have any other medical condition to make your bone weaker. After that get a referral for PT, take any supplements needed but make regular physical exercise in a gym your routine 3-4 times per week. ...Read more

Darkness in neck can be rubbed off but comes back within a day. I also have darkness between my thighs, on my elbows, underarms, and fingers. Why?!

TFFD: Sounds like terra firma-forme dermatosis (tffd) which is an uncommon disorder of keratinization. The etiology is not known. It usually presents with dirt-like lesions that are resistant to washing but should resolve by rubbing with isopropyl alcohol. The other concern would be acanthosis nigracans, which can be associated with Insulin resistance, but shouldn't rub off. See your dr. To be sure. ...Read more
