I haven't had my thyroid checked, but I think I will bring that up with my doctor. After having my son three years ago my metabolism changed, it's faster. Not complaining about that, but my friend told me that pregnancy can affect the thyroid and that could be why my metabolism is different. I didn't know it could also cause a problem with acne.View Thread
I searched this forum and wasn't able to come up with a similar thread. Also didn't really come up with anything in an internet search.
I'm going to be 37 in August. About three months ago I started getting acne on my neck, it started just below the ears and then migrated around to the front of my throat. I generally have a dozen or more painful whiteheads at a time and otc acne treaments don't really help clear them up.
Around that time I also started experiencing noncyclic breast pain (not affected by my period) and I'm not pregnant. It is in the entire breast, not centered in a particular spot, and is not the muscle beneath.
These are annoying symptoms that I would associate with puberty, but being in my mid/late 30's I'd say that's not the problem. Has anyone else experienced these symptoms?View Thread
