Hi all, I am newly diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Has come as a shock to me since I am 23 years old, slim and have no family history of it except autoimmune problems and heart disease.
I sweat a lot when walking, very tired and the tiredness is so bad it hurts my head. Also very hard stools despite good diet and drinking water.
I also suffer from eczema and very bad joint pain. I take 50mcg levothyroxine and diagnosed 5 weeks ago.
Thanks for letting me join and I would be glad to hear your stories!
