Just out of interest really I was diagnosed as hypo when I was 21 (which I'm thinking is pretty young hence the reason for this thread really) and I'm just wondering if anyone was diagnosed when they were around that age too
I had zero symptoms and the thyroid issue was just picked up on a random blood test I had when I had glandular fever when I was at University. I pretty much went straight on to 150mcg of levo fairly quickly (so I'm guessing my blood results must have been pretty severe but at that age I never thought to get copies of results etc).
I'm now 38 and basically have been in gradual decline ever since with things significantly worsening over the last couple of years I think I find it hard as I feel like now should be the 'prime' of my life and I feel horrendous but also feel like I have to battle on with working full time and getting up at 6am and living at quite a fast pace with the demands of work I often think to myself 'if this is what I feel like in my 30s gawd knows how I'm going to be by the time I'm in my 60s' '
Just really wondering what kind of ages people were when they were diagnosed as most people I come across with thyroid issues seem to be diagnosed much later on in life so would be interested to hear experiences from others and if anyone has had similar experiences to me really.
