Depression symptoms underactive thyroid

Common Questions and Answers about Depression symptoms underactive thyroid


Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid about ten years ago. This was probably about 20 years after I first developed the problem. I finally have a wonderful doctor that is very attentive to how I feel in addition to the numbers. I believe this is at the root of many of my other medical problems; such as sleep apnea, depression, obesity, and the constant pain I am in. I would like to speak with others about this issue and how they are dealing with it. Please respond.
1580318 tn?1550254481 So i know there's a few ladies on here that have issues with their thyroid, and was wondering what some of your symptoms are. The reason i'm asking is cause i'm wondering if it's become an issue for me. I did an online quiz for thyroid disease, and it came back that i answered 12 of the 33 questions as possible thyroid disease indicators. Which is 36%. Some of the ones i answered yes too were Irritability - this was i think the big one.
Avatar f tn Have been having severe depression, fatigue, headaches, ache in hip joints in bed, my thyroid I think is now slightly enlarged and sometimes I feel it pulsing, just odd. No energy or motivation just want to go to bed. Prefer to avioid contact with other people - not maintaining any friendships like I used to do. I am peri-menopausal - last period so far Aug 2011.
Avatar n tn Dry skin, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sensitive eyes, exhaustion, muscle aches, depression, weight gain, hair loss etc, etc. How does a sluggish thyroid or lack of thyroid hormone affect so many different bodily functions?
578865 tn?1218000343 It might seem a bit wrong, but I'm enjoying having an overactive thyroid.  I love having so much energy, I'm getting lots done and I don't feel tired.  Much better than when my thyroid was underactive.
354706 tn?1279470795 It has been almost coming to 3 weeks since my mum had her last chemo. First week was tough when the side-effects hit. Mum’s emotions went yo-yo. Second week was better as there was less down time. Now coming to 3rd week, mum is getting better day by day. Although still sometimes depressed, the good days far outnumbered the bad days. Mum would go for a CT scan in 2 days time and if the results are good, hopefully she would be pronounced as NED. Ok….now on to my personal problem.

Avatar f tn Buddy, i believe you do not have HIV but i do believe you have an underactive thyroid. My friend sarah had that problem and gained weight and always said she was tired. Here are the symptoms i looked them up for you.
Avatar m tn t think I am experienced enough to give you all the answers you need although since I have Hypothyroid, I know what the symptoms are because I have had just about all of them, I also know that when you have a thyroidectomy, it is because your thyroid is Hyperactive, Producing too musc hormone that is called T4 then your body converts the into Free T3, which is the hormone that your body needs, when they remove your thyroid or a portion of it, they reduce the amount of T4 that is produced, it is
Avatar n tn t know what to do, maybe you can tell me the symptoms of an underactive thyroid, please help me out here and tell me what to do. Thank you so much! Jenn L.
Avatar m tn I have had an underactive thyroid for the past 3 years. I'm currently taking 0,1 mg Eltroxin, but am not finding it very helpful with relieving symptoms of depression and weight gain. I recently heard about Armour and Naturethroid being used for patients in the US and that they have very positive results with it. Do you maybe know if it is available in South Africa or is there maybe alternative Natural desiccated thyroid products available in South Africa that you know of?
Avatar f tn It may be worth getting your blood checked to make sure that your underactive thyroid is under control. Suffering from depression, being under stress and anxiety can all affect the memory as well as lack of sleep and being dehydrated. Make sure that you drink plenty of water so as not to get dehydrated. With the medication that you are on, I presume that you are not drinking any alcohol.
Avatar n tn My boyfriend has just been told he has an underactive thyroid, can you help me and tell me what a thyroid is I know you can have underactive and overactive and somebody told me its to do with the throat please help me as i am 31 years old with his 2 children and i had a strict upbringing, my last relative (my mother) died 2 years ago and I only have Michael and I love him so much I don't want to lose him.
Avatar n tn An underactive thyroid can cause weight gain, depression, muscle aches, fatigue, dry skin and dry or brittle hair, hair loss, constipation, a constant feeling of being cold, and many other symptoms. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn I would pay a visit to your MD and request a thyroid panel, and a Complete blood workup (CBC) Fatigue is a sign of underactive thyroid in addition to other issues, are you taking Paxil for depression? Depression and anxiety are symptoms also. So a thyroid imbalance is possible, but you would need to get blood tests done to determine if that is the case or not.
215461 tn?1331862765 I guess it was only a matter of time before depression grabbed me with its nasty claws. The constant anxiety has finally won over. I want to live life. I look out the window longing for some normalcy. I feel lonely and vulnerable. It's as if I am the only one in my world, physically. I'm tired. It's so tiring to constantly be fighting a battle you can't win.
585708 tn?1247192813 I have had cold feet for three years, this went into my whole body about three months ago. I had an ultrasound that showed 4 small nodules and a little bit large. They say my thyroid blood work is on the high end of normal but because I have very low testosterone they are wanting for that to go up (with Andro-Gel but may switch to injectable) before they go for the thyroid, to see if there is a change with normal testosterone, In my opinion.
