I'm new to the forum and looking for some advice. I have been suffering for months with fatigue, insomnia and depression (which isn't normal for me). Recently I've begun to put on weight, my skin is dry and scaly, my hair is brittle and breaking off and I can feel my what I believe is my thyroid enlarged in my throat. I have a strong family history of thyroid conditions, my mother is one of 5 children and 4 of the 5 of them have underactive thyroids or have had graves disease. I had bloods done last week, as my doctor agreed that it is likely that my thyroid is under active, however a phone call to the surgery today resulted in the receptionist telling me that the doctor has checked the results and they are all normal. She couldn't give me any more information. I intend to make an appointment to discuss it with the GP, but I'm wondering if anyone has any advice?
