Thanks for writing in. None of your sym0toms appear to be related to hypothyroidism with the exception of weakness. I dont think they are related to hormonal disturbances. You need detailed evaluation to find out the cause. Meanwhile you can take calcium, vitamin d supplementation along with other suppl you have been taking. Periods may take upto 1 year to resume after delivery. So nothong to worry about that. If your thyroid test was abnormal & your doc has not advised treatment means it was not indicated then. Mild form of hypothyroidism cant be expected to result in symptoms that you have. Dont loose hope, with proper evaluation many of your symptoms can be resolved. If in followup any hormonal issue comes up I would be glad to help you.
