Brief Answer:
Get your thyroid checked out!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about these symptoms that you have reported. They are suggestive of a low functioning thyroid. I will suggest that you get the TSH levels measured as this is the main step in determining whether you have this condition. Treatment is relatively simple with hormonal supplementation. Communicate these results to me for further action and management.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask of more information and clarifications if need be.
