Hi I have just joined. I am 29 years old and I have come here because I have been feeling low. I have been taking antidepressants since I was 24 and about the same time I had an underactive thyroid and iron deficiency and B vitamin deficiency. I have had some physical symptoms as well like constipation and feeling cold and looking washed out all the time but the doctors have put me back onto an antidepressant called Fluoxetine because I suffered from such bad tiredness and dizziness and brain fog that I couldn't concentrate and it cost me my job. My thyroid consultant at the hospital wasn't increasing my thyroid medication dose as per her recommendations and she said any physical symptoms were not to do with thyroid. When I was last at the doctor she insisted my problems were all in my head and so she referred me to Positive Steps. If I have come to the wrong place I apologise. Thanks for reading and comments.
