I'm 49 & in the peri-menopause stage. Have had 23yrs of living with an underactive thyroid relatively ok. However, now everything is so topsy turvey with hormones irregular heavy periods ( i have two very small fibroids) cannot take the pill or coil & have decided to just go with the flow & see what happens. I am very lethargic so off to doctors on Friday to ask to check on thyroid ( i really don't like nana naps in the afternoon but that is what is happening to me now) Vit D was about 52 when last checked 6 months ago. I cannot find info on internet about women going through the menopause and having an under-active thyroid it's all about discovering your thyroid is under-active while going through the menopause. it would be nice to have some info from women going through the same problems. Btw i exercise regularly but am struggling to eat healthily as I feel like I'm on a permanent pmt & craving food to eat. I never used to have cravings as much as i do now. Anyone have similar symptoms? I would appreciate your feedback Thank you!
