I am new to the site and diagnosed with hypothyroidism nearly two years ago at thirty five. I feel worse now as I cant see an end to the tiredness, feeling so low and the lethargy. My doc does not think I need to see a specialist and keeps saying my blood is in range. Any more help or advise or even that someone else has felt like this in the past and feels ok now would boost me, if you could just advise me how to get there. My thyroid completely stopped producing very quickly and I was diagnosed only after a few heated pleadings with the doc for a blood test (they kept saying I had IBS). All this happened within eight weeks. Both my parents were also diagnosed with cancer soon after and mum has actually died in the past year so my doc (who has lost completely any patience for my moanings) keeps picking up the depression being a sign of this and not the thyroid disorder - I am getting nowhere and feeling bad.
