i am a 53 year old woman and have just this week been diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Looking back, I realise that many symptoms that I have put down to my age or 'just how I am' were now due to the condition. I finally went to the doctor as for the last couple years my weight has been gradually increasing, no matter how hard I have tried to sort it. I do wonder how long I have had this, as even in my late 20's I had M.E and have now read of a connection. I am also someone who for most of my life, has always felt more tired than most people, and needed to plan enough 'rest time' around any social events. I have read I may feel worse before I feel better, although some say they felt better very quickly - please let me know your experiences x
