Hi all, I hate to self diagnose myself but I can't seem to figure out what is wrong and am getting blood tests for thyroid done soon but wanted others opinions. I'm a 19 year old female and I've been having the following symptoms since I hit puberty. At around age 13 I had a very strange undiagnoasble illness for around 6 months which my godmother (who has a thyroid condition) related to her illness. I thought I'd look up the symptoms and I seem to fit every single category.
I have these symptoms:
-very sensitive to the cold
-unexplained weight gain (I eat a very healthy diet no junk food and mainly fruit and veg and excersize a normal amount and am very active however I seem to still gain weight and have been since hitting puberty)
- brittle hair and nails
-very achey muscles without any strain to them
- swollen looking cheeks
I don't know if this seems like a thyroid problem but I would love to hear others thoughts or symptoms you have to compare it, I just want to feel upbeat and well and would be relieved to find a treatment
