A lot of those symptoms are consistent w underactive thyroid. Blood test will confirm (thyroid function test incl t3, t4, tsh and antibodies). Could be some b12 issues too. When you gained so much weight when pregnant did they test you for gestational diabetes or thyroid issues?


Looks like it and thirst might suggest diabetes.
