Well, my suspicions have been confirmed. My thyroid is all wonked out. Lucky me, thyroid issues run in my family (along with just about every other genetic malady ; so, my PCP isn't sure whether my low thyroid levels are tied to post-partum thyroiditis (which typically corrects itself over time) or whether it's merely a coincidence and it's the genetic link (meaning I'll most likely have to take medication to regulate for the rest of my life). Either way, it's nice to know that (a) I'm not crazy (b) there is a medical reason for the lethargy, moodiness, and [mild] anxiety that I've been experiencing lately and (c) relatively speaking, it's not that bad (d) it's good that I found out now, so that I can start seeing an endocrinologist and regulate before TTC for baby #2. I also found out that I'm [severely] deficient in both B12 and Vitamin D. The good news - my cholesterol is in the normal range for the first time in forever.
Geeeeeeeze - I sound like I'm falling apart! Is this what 30+ brings?!? All downhill...LOL!
Anyone else have experience with treatments for hypothyroidism or B12 shots? If so, what do I have to look forward to?
