Hi, I was hoping people could offer some advice on my situation. I am 26 years old , was a healthy female before I had my second child 2 years ago and I have started to develop a whole bunch of problems.  I am always tired no matter how much sleep I get, I actually nap in the afternoon when she does.  My anxiety is pretty severe, to the point where I have started to develop health anxiety or hypochondria.  I have weight issues, I can'tlose weight, I gained weight while I was breastfeeding.  I have brain fog and difficulty concentrating and my memory is poor.  I snap very easy and am usually irritated. I get hot flashes. My thyroid has been tested numerous times and it comes back fine so the doctors just tell me I'm fine.  I don't feel fine.  Please someone help me out, I'm starting to think I have some horrible life threatening disease that no one can find.  I hate feeling this way.

    Have you had your B12 checked? I was only diagnosed with thyroid problems after I went back to the doctor sure my B12 was low again because symptomatically they feel very similar to me.

    The endocrinologist tested my vitamin d level but not my b12 level.  I am going to one of the natural doctors and I will have them check it. Thank you for your suggestion!

    I had the same symptoms after my baby and did not know I had a thyroid problem.  I always felt like I wanted to commit suicide and was so depressed.  I went to a doctor who discovered I had a goiter and after lab tests showed Hypothyroid levels he put me on Synthroid and I was a new woman!!

    That was 32 years ago.  I am now on Tirosint 25mg a day PLUS 6000mg of Vitamin D3 and it makes ALL the difference!!  Lost weight and feel terrific.  Perhaps you are missing well needed vitamins and minerals in your diet.  It is very necessary to keep up your immune system as well (by eating food rich in vitamins and minerals daily) because anothor symptom of Hypothyroidism is Hashimoto's which is when the thyroid attacts the immune systems

    My endocrinologist doesn't seem to care about any of the symptoms I am describing to her, I have honestly gotten to the point where I think I'm dying of cancer or something horrible.   My anxiety level is through the roof!

    Hello. I know this discussion is over a year old, but I am hoping to get some answers myself. I am experiencing the same symptoms and I had my baby six months ago. I think something is really wrong and they haven't found it yet. Did you ever find out what was wrong? Did the symptoms go away? Please help in anyway you can. I have been to every specialist known to man and it's not getting any better. They all keep telling me I'm fine, but I don't feel fine. I feel horrible. Thank you and I do hope you are feeling better.
