Its been a few years now since i was diagnosed but here is how it came about...
I had been having symptoms for what seems like years but they were getting steadily worse it was the hair loss that prompted me to go to the doctors in the end,
I put up with the aches and pains the tiredness coldness constipation the list could go on but the hair was a step too far.
I had tests done in the september which coincided with me giving up smoking they came back satisfactory..
The tests were repeated in the Nov and came back as my thyroid was low.
It will be 3 yrs in Sep my symptoms have all but gone apart from the hair loss.
Ohh and did anyone else get a numb mouth??? I ended up going for a MRI scan which came back clear and was yet another thing that was attributed to my thyroid
