I know this is sort of a funny question to be asking, but I have been thinking about it for some time now. I am 30 years old and I was diagnosed with Hashimotos Thyroid Disease at age 14. Everything was fine, and I was able to get pregnant with no problems at the age of 28. But I noticed something strange when I was pregnant. My areolas turned lighter not darker like all of the pregnancy books said. My OBGYN said it was nothing to worry about, but no one that I know of has ever had this happen. My areolas actually blended in with my skin, it looked as though I didn't have areolas. I gave natural birth to a healthy baby girl on Oct 25 2007. She weighed 6 lbs. 15 oz. And slowly but surely my areola color went back to normal a couple of months after giving birth.
Everything was going great until 14 months after her birth. It happened about 2 weeks after I stopped breastfeeding. I began having SEVERE diaherra, loss of appetite, (I lost 18 lbs) nausea, SEVERE insomnia, SEVERE pain in joint and muscles, neck pain, back pain, lump in throat, tingling in hands and feet, my hands swelled up every night, eye problems including eye floaters and blurred vision, chest pain so bad that I went to the ER one night, abdominal pain, headaches, SEVERE dandruff, and beleive me the list goes on. All these symtoms seemed to hit me at one time. And they didn't slowly progress. I was fine one day and the next day all of this happened to me. After going to every doctor in our area I was finally diagnosed with Vitamin D deficiency, LEVEL 6. I have been put on vitamin D prescription (50,000 icu once a week for 3 months) and started to feel better, but I still feel icky sometimes. Some days are better than others. I have also been on a gluten free diet for 3 weeks now, and it has helped a little. But I know that it may take time to feel myself again.
I just always wondered about the areola thing. As if it was some sort of sign when I was pregnant. All of my girlfriends have never heard of it and I was just wondering if anyone else had heard of this before. If you could offer any advice that would be wonderful.
Thanks for your time, and any advice that you can offer!
