Central Hypothyroidism

From: Freespirit - 5 years 12 weeks ago

Hi, I have a mass on my thyroid which has no thyroid tissue in it and was recently diagnosed with Central Hypothyroidism. I am waiting for a MRI to ascertain whether I have a pituitary gland tumour. This diagnosis appears to be rare hence I would much appreciate any info that can shed light on it. I have been put on a low dose of Eltroxin and have been taking this for the last month. I have hair loss that is mostly one side of my head and presume this may indicate a tumour on that side of the head. I also have blurred vision, dry skin and loss of appetite. Will the Eltroxin help these symptoms? Will it reverse the hair loss?
