Why am I freezing?

I also posted on here and someone suggested running a gold ring on the inside of your arm and if it turns green your iron is low.
Okay, at first I thought this must be some wive's tale and didn't believe it. I was curious, however, and decided to try it. I couldn't see anything on my wrist or arm, but someone else said they thought you were supposed to try it on the cheek. Well, I had all kinds of dark lines from the gold ring when I tried it there! I subsequently tried it on my husband, daughter, and son and no lines on any of them. Strange! I'm going to try it again today to see what happens.

Doctor's nurse told me that hysterectomy does not affect thyroid levels
That was also a concern of mine. I had thyroid surgery 11 years ago but stopped taking the medication 7 years ago. I had it checked last March and it was still normal. I was worried maybe the hysterectomy had an affect on my thyroid levels.

I am considering seeing my regular doctor for a blood test, but I'm not sure if it is too soon. Any thoughts?

The information linking thyroid problems came from the HRT leaflet... I don't think the hysterectomy has anything to do with thyroid function.. but if you are using HRT, it could be associated with thyroid issues.
