At 19, I was diagnosed with low thyroid and every since then I developed alot of symptoms. The ones that scare me the most is the mental symptoms. I have gotten anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts and etc. I feel extremely tired all the time and like I'm out of touch with reality. I don't know what to do. I've been to doctors and they say my thyroid is fine, but what else can it be. Can mental symptoms just manifest this way? I look up symptoms of thyroid and they all match, i also had a false positive ra factor. I just don't know what to do and get get help from doctors and this is holding my life back. Why am i not getting better after 4 years?View Thread
Hello every one. I'm 22 and noticing lines on my forehead and under my eyes, by my lips and on my jaws when I smile. I moisturize and stay out of the sun, I don't wear makeup..don't smoke, barely drink and don't tan. My Mom and Dad have good genes-no wrinkles and even my grandparents look great for their age. I'm also african american- if that matters. I don't know whats wring with me. I have low thyroid disease, thats not yet under control.. so I don't know if this is the cause or not..which i doubt because I have been under alot of stress and my body has to, from trying to balance my thyroid and work and school. What bothers me the most are the two big lines on my forehead that I noticed 4 days ago...is this permanent?View Thread
