Ask a Gynecologist and Get Answers to Your Ob-Gyn Questions ASAP
You're welcome. Thyroid disease is a common cause so make sure she tests you for this. Illness, arthritis/inflammatory types of illnesses, and cancer are other causes. She should order blood tests to evaluate you for these illnesses. If nothing is found in your blood, she may have to scan your abdomen to make sure there are no signs of cancer.
I wish you the best. If you have additional questions, please ask. If none, please click "Accept." Thank you.
