Premature grey

I'm 23 and in the last 2 weeks have found 3 grey hairs all in one spot. The grey part of the hair is about 6cm long then my normal colour continues. I started using Tertroxin about 3 months ago. Could this be the reason? I'm not showing any symptoms of hyperthyroidism, more hypo...being sluggish with very dry skin. But I'm also on Ocutane 20mg every second day and this can also cause dry skin. I don't really mind the grey part, hairdye will work fine I guess, I'm more worried about my thyroid. My appetite has seriously increased but I think this might be linked to my new pill Mirelle.
Whats going on???

Hi Grysie
This can be due to thyroid problems. When last did you test your thyroid hormone levels? Mirelle won't give you such an increased appetite.
