Brief Answer:
Please do lab test for thyroid

Detailed Answer:
It is possible she may have a thyroid condition. Symptoms can be often vague and non-specific and so the best way to ascertain if she has an under-active thyroid is to perform a blood test for thyroid functions like
Free T4
TPO antibodies
TG antibodies

These tests are very reliable in diagnosing the most common form of under-active thyroid.
