Comment from: jolly, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: July 10

I have had a under-active thyroid for 24 years. I have been feeling terrible for 8 months, but doctors never put it down too my thyroid. It is not a good feeling. I'm always tired. I can't be bothered with anything like housework or going out. I have put on so much weight. My hair is very dry. I'm so snappy and I suffer bad memory loss. My doctor upped my amytriptolene, which helps me to sleep, but doesn't help my problem. I feel like a zombie. I just had my blood results back which are abnormal.
