I've been quite ill on and off for about a year, at one point I thought that I was having and heart attack. After several blood tests and lot of investigation it turns out that I've got Hypothyroidism. Basically I've got an under-active thyroid gland. Apparently the Thyroid is the body's gearbox and mine is running below idle. I pick my medication up tomorrow and from what I've read on the subject I should see an almost immediate improvement in my health (if I take the tablets for the rest of my life).
The main symptoms are: Tiredness, lethargy, intolerance to cold, dry skin and hair loss, slowing of intellectual activity e.g. poor memory and difficulty concentrating, decreased appetite with weight gain. Basically, if the medication doesn't work I need to be shot.
The reason I'm telling you all this is that I'm hoping someone out there has got the same condition and that they will tell me the medication works. I'm fed up of feeling like I can't be arsed to do anything, and I hoping that I'll be like a spring lamb once the medication cuts in.
