I recently had a check up at a women's health centre. Within a few minutes of meeting 2 x doctors they both broke eye contact and stared at my throat. They began asking me a series of question have I gained or lost weight. Do I feel the cold or heat more than others. Am I lethargic. I was a little a taken back and said no to their questions. On second thoughts I experience hot flushes frequently and get the shakes quite frequently. I have always struggled to keep within a health weight range. Should I be tested for thyroid problems? And if I drink frequently would it be best to abstain from alcohol before assuming that I have a thyroid concern? Anonymous
