Why has my voice lowered recently?
« on: 18/02/2009 19:49:15 »
I have noticed that my singing voice range has lowered about a perfect fourth over the last year. Could this be due to hypothyroidism? I have a number of other symptoms that fit, but my TSH is normal and T4 and T3 are in the lower quartile of normal.

Mod edit - formatted the subject as a question - please do this to help keep the forum tidy and easy to navigate - thanks, and welcome to the forum!

How're your eyebrows ? ...

The symptoms of adult hypothyroidism are dull facial expressions and a low-pitched and hoarse voice. Skin is often dry and scaly, cold, thickened and coarse. Hair may be scanty, coarse and brittle. Often eyebrows are greatly thinned or even partly missing.
