I started very hypothyroid 8 months after my son was born but I’m now certain I was hypo well before he was born. He’s now 34 and has a few of the symptoms I had before my meds were correct. He’s totally unable to get out of bed in the morning, unable to put on weight or keep it on, unable to organise his life; lurches from one crisis to the next. I have wondered for a long time if he’s on the autistic spectrum – perhaps Aspergers, although he’s very sociable & just about manages to do his job. I know the first thing should be blood tests with his GP but I’m doubting he will agree to do that. Any advice please gratefully received.
