But want to see if other people think the same before I go to GP My symptoms are Absolutely exhausted, feel like I've had no sleep when I wake up be it 6,8,10 or 12 hours sleep I've just had. Falling asleep in the afternoon
Lethargic, slow and clumsy. Brain is on a go slow, forgetful, unable to focus on one thing, feel like I'm walking through treacle
Ridges on nails Dry skin, Hair falls out by the handful
Cold even when it's sunny outside Pins and needles in hands and arms
Wake up in night with panic attacks an have to go in garden to calm down. Very loud snoring,
Mind you, I have hypothyroidism, iron deficiency anaemia and b12 deficiency and all the symptoms cross over. Also, they are often co-morbid conditions. You could also throw vit d deficiency in there for some of the symptoms. However, it was the mention of slowness and constipation that made me think thyroid first.
I have had bouts of anaemia for years on and off so assumed I just needed some more iron but noticed by nails looked like corrugated iron as googled (as you do) and it came up on a list of symptoms for under active thyroid. If you had 24 or more on the list you were very likely to have an underachiever thyroid and I ticked 40!!
