He has been treated for hypothyroid for a little under a year now, only because I insisted his thyroid be tested. The doctor he was seeing kept insisting he was depressed. Yet his eyebrows were disappearing and that is a very definate sign something is wrong. So long as he takes his thyroid meds he will be okay on that. The rheumy has pondered aloud if the thyroid issues are autoimmune because it would make sense. I am just having a hard time figuring out how the plaquenil helped his mouth sores if he has RA or a similar arthritis condition because the mouth sores do not fit the initial PA or more recent RA potential dxes. He has no definate dx as of yet because his symptoms are not quite perfect for either of the conditions our rheumy suspects might be the problem.
