I'm 24 years old female, most of my life I am very active going to the gym, yoga, swimming pool, jogging... My mood was always up and down, but for the last half a year I'm very moody, very miserable and complaining about everything. I thought it can be due to my contraception pills so I started to work harder with myself and be more positive.
However in the last couple of months I've also noticed that I get bloated too often and experience constipation. Tried a variety of foods, some drugs to relief it but nothing worked and everything just got worse. My recent blood test showed iron deficiency, GP prescribed some drugs to increase iron and help with constipation. Again, constipation is just getting worse...
The worst thing is that in the last 2-3 weeks I put on weight around 4kg, and for me always being fit, this weight gain is a horrible thing. I went to see GP again, and then looking at the same blood test she said that my thyroid activity is just below the normal! (why she didn't say it before???)
I remember only this number: Free Thyroxine 11.56 (12.00- 22.00)
I know it's just slightly below, but what are your experiences of it? Do my symptoms sound relevant? What are the next steps?
I went to make a new blood test, and am still waiting to the results...
I am very worried, I want to get back to normal and be the same as I was before..
