Psychiatrist 's  Response
Thanks for your query. As you mentioned many of symptoms of hypothroidism like extreme fatigue, generalised weakness can mimic depression. Also sometimes throid disorders can have onset after a still birth. Hence, i would suggest to go ahead with thyroid function tests and consult an endocrinologist. You would also require an evaluation for depression by a psychiatrist. Hope you find the suggestions useful.
