hi all. my name is kelly and im looking for help and advice if possible.
im 26 years old and have 3 kiddies. for the last 2 years i have had an overactive thyroid. i suffer badly from night sweats, hot flushes. i also have trouble sleeping, i shake every so slightly. i have put on weight as in i look like im about 7 months preggers, and other symptoms.
i was talking to a friends mum how is a nurse and she said that these symptoms are of the menopause, along with the other troubles i am having.
i spoke to my doctor and he said it could be that my tablets for the thyriod prob has turned it underactive, but he has also done a blood test to check for menopause. i get the results on monday.
could it be early menopause? i have read that thyiod problems are part of it????
thanks for any help you can give me. kel
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your symptoms could be suggestive of thyroid hormone imbalance as well as possibility of early menopause. Only after examination and careful analysis of your lab results we can arrive at diagnosis. Be in regular follow-up with your treating doctor. Get started on appropriate treatment as indicated. Consider requesting a referral to Endocrinologist for further management if hormonal imbalance is detected.
