Hi, I am a 31 yr. old mom of 5 kids. I have been struggling with different health issues for some time now. I just went to the dr. last week and they finally did some blood work and me and discovered that my thyroid level is very low. they have started me on some meds. for this, so I guess I have hypothyroidism. The dr. didn't tell me that but when looked up on webmd and medicine.net and looked under low thyroid level that is what came up.
Right now I am really struggeling as I have gained 7 pounds in a months time. I was just put on an anti-depressant and some meds for fibromylgia, as this is what the dr. thought might be going on with me when I went the first time about being tired, not interested in things anymore, muscle aches and pains. I just want to sleep all the time and when I do get up and do things it takes everything I have to be able to do them and I just get so exhausted when I do do them.
I guess I'm just looking to meet others with this and see how you all cope. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
