Hi, everyone. This is my first post and I'm looking for advice. My 22 year old son, who lives at home, is displaying many of the symptoms of Hypothyroidism. He's complaining of feeling tired, lethargic, achy. His throat is sore, especially to the touch at the front and he says his legs feel "wobbly" when he stands up. He's usually so healthy that I'm not even sure who his designated GP is! On top of all the above, I guess I should mention that his Dad was diagnosed with hypothyroidism nearly 10 years ago and has since been told by his mother that "that runs in the family"!! My question is this... should I push my son to see a doctor and ask for a blood test? I don't want to come over as an over-protective mother but I'm too worried to want to ignore it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
