Hi,
Thank you for posting your query.
I agree hypothyroidism can have similar symptoms as you have, but it needs to be diagnosed.
Blood tests helpful in diagnosing hypothyroidism include TSH (Thyroid stimulating hormone) which is elevated, and T3 & T4 that are reduced.
So,let us wait for the reports.
Please get back if you have any more queries.
Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM
