Hi I joined HU yesterday and have first signed up to the depression and anxiety forums. I am 29 years old and I have come here because I was diagnosed hypothyroid 5 years ago and around about the same time I was diagnosed with clinical depression and iron deficiency and B vitamin deficiency. My GP gave me an antidepressant called Zoloft and sent me away. I do have some physical symptoms as well like constipation and feeling cold and looking washed out all the time but the doctors have put me back onto an antidepressant called Fluoxetine because I suffered from such bad tiredness and dizziness and brain fog that I couldn't concentrate and it cost me my job. My thyroid consultant at the hospital wasn't increasing my thyroid medication dose as per her recommendations and she said any physical symptoms were not to do with thyroid. When I was last at the doctor she insisted my problems were all in my head and so she referred me to Positive Steps. If I have come to the wrong place I apologise. If there is anything further I need to add please let me know. For thyroid I take 125mcg Levothyroxine and 10mcg Liothyronine. Thanks for reading and comments.
