I have just joined your forum. i am a 45 year old mom of 4.I am about to have my blood tests done to check if I do, in fact, suffer from hypothyriod. My hair is falling out and i am completely unable to lose weight. In fact, have gained 15 kg over the last two years with no change in eating or exercise patterns., also exhausted all the time. I'm actually praying for a positive diagnosis (it sounds strange to want to bd diagnosed with hypothyroidism), but it would finally explain so much . It's highly frustrating when you are experiencing these symptoms and people tell you its because you are getting older or "it's all in your head".
As soon as I have the results for my blood tests, I'd like to post them here on this forum to get some feedback.
So glad to have found this forum.
