I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism 16 years ago and have been on Levothyroxine since then. My first symptoms at the time were linked to anxiety and stress as causes, but I also lost a lot of weight in a short period of time and had almost uncontrollable crying spells. Once I started crying, even when i tried, it was difficult to stop and sometimes had to lie down and go to sleep so it would stop.
Since then, being actually quite stable on the meds over the years, I recently started to feel overly emotional again and again have difficulty to stop crying once i start. It is true that I have some stressful things to cope with in my life right now, which probably affects my thyroid function negatively. but contrary to what my GP thinks, I feel that my crying spells are not caused by having emotional difficulty coping with my life (GP recommended therapy), but rather are a side effect of my thyroid not functioning the way it should. Anyone else who finds themselves in a similar situation?
