I had the same issue with my GYN. My hair and skin were very dry and my nails were brittle. I was also having issues keeping my weight off no matter what I did. My GYN told me I was border line. When I went to my family doctor he checked my Thyroid and said it was low. Go figure. Anyway, he put me Thyroid meds and soon I was feeling much better. It pays to get a second or even third opinion. As the years have gone by I have needed to have my Thyroid meds adjusted up. I can't stand having my Thyroid levels low. UGH! I wish you the best.
Yes, get yourself refered to an Endocrinologist. My family doctor tested my thyroid and he thought it was fine so I had him refer me to an Endo anyway because I had the symptoms of hypothyroid. When I met her and told how I felt she said I was and ordered blood test. I have been with her for years now. I'm on Synthroid since.
Good luck and take care,
