Question Asked:

"Good day, how are you and work?I gained serious weight lately and experienced drastic hair loss. I do everything possible to control these problems but it is not working. The doctor advice exercise which I have been doing for over 6 months but nothing has changed. I suspect hormonal imbalance or thyroid disorder but I was diagnosed with fibroid. Please could fibroid be the cause of these changes I am experiencing? Please help"

    hello,am sorry for what u are passing through. But fibroid is not likely to cause drastic weight gain and hair Loss.Hormonal disorder such as hypothyroidism is a possibility. Do u get constipated,do u feel cold when others are feeling warm,av people complained that your activity is slow and u feel lethargic/sluggish?is there any change in your menstrual cycle in terms of frequency or volume?if yes then it's likely hypothyroidism.about the fibroid diagnosis,are u having abdominal pain which correlates with ur menses and is periodic like ur menses?any increase in your tummy?is ur menses overflowing compared to before?if yes,it may be fibroid really.See a specialist in Endocrinology and a gynecologist respectively.they will surely help.
