eyebrow loss??

This is a bit of a silly question, but I'm wondering about the thyroid related eyebrow loss. What does it look like? Can it happen unevenly? Does it correspond with losing hair on the top of the head?
I have always had thick eyebrows, but in the past couple of months my LEFT eyebrow has lost its outer edge. It's so weird. And the rest of my eyebrows don't need plucking anymore.
I have a ton of hair on my head, so although it seems like I'm losing more hair in my brush there's nothing noticeable there.
I don't have a diagnosed thyroid problem although I have plenty of symptoms. I've just had a bunch of blood tests for things that overlap thyroid - insulin resistance, low progesterone, etc. But I can't help but wonder about the eyebrow thing.

Sure sounds like it. You can Google it for pics of people with thyroid eyebrow.

I've done that but I've never found a decent picture. I guess I'll go try again.

if you have symptoms, do the blood tests correspond with showing you might have a problem.
If you want, share you labs and lets see if there might be a problem.

Sex hormones and adrenal issues also over lap or show as signs of thyroid issues too.

Thanks for that.
I've had blood tests. I'm waiting for the results. I've already shared my thyroid results in other threads. I'm within range but my T3 is too low. My dr. said my thyroid is OK but not fantastic and she's waiting for all my results to propose a course of action.
I was really just wondering if eyebrow loss could be on one eyebrow or not. Maybe it's something different.

It's the very first thing I noticed myself....but at that time no one realized the 'connection'. I also have very thick hair on my head, but when I T3 dips too low I don't have to shave my legs frequently either.
