I think I have an underactive thyroid and have booked an appointment with the gp. My question is, if its been affecting your long term memory, will treatment recover those memories?
I have always had awful recall. Friends and family will be reminiscing about old times and all it does is vaguely ring a bell, at best. We took a family trip to disney florida when i was 6, can barely remember it. While with my ex, I'd tell him a story that happened to me, for him to say I'd already told it weeks or months previously. Lately it has really bothered me so I started trying to work out why my memory is so bad. One thing I discovered is that It could be due to hypothyroidism - which my mum had suggested for my weight issues a couple years ago.
This would make sense, as a young active child and teen with a pretty healthy diet, I was always over weight and am worse now. My periods have always caused me issues. I have problems with energy and lethargy. The list goes on..
I guess i just want to know if those memories i want to remember will come back with treatment or if they're gone. Anyone who's experienced something similar?
