Hi. I have just been diagnosed with an under active thyroid. I haven't had any weight issues that seem to be typical of this condition, but I have many other symptoms. I have felt depressed for almost a year, even when doing things I love, I have felt extemely depressed and have been suffering with severe stress and anxiety to the point where I don't wan to be around people as I have nothing positive to say. This has really been getting me down, which obviously makes it worse. I have been exhausted for no reason and could quite happily spend all my time in bed.
I have also had arthritic pain in my hands and wrists, so much so that I got tested for arthritis which I have been told I don't have. I have also reacted very strongly to insect/spider bites which led me to have the blood tests in the first place.
I have had no sex drive for almost a year now, which is very frustrating as I am in a wonderful relationship, but I just have no sex drive whatsoever.
I wanted to check if these symptoms sound like hypothyroidism and could possibly be resolved with medication. If anyone can offer any advice that would be great as the only other person I know that has this is my mum who is rather happy about it as it explains her weight issues.
