Re: [IP] Thyroid and younger kids



Sherry
All my life I had doctors saying I had an enlarged thyroid gland but they
never did any tests-why I have no idea.
After my first pregnancy, I felt horrible-could barely get out of bed. I
felt 80 years old. At my six week check up after the birth my ob/gyn said
you need synthroid.
Finally someone diagnosed me with hypothyroidism. I am now on .15 of
synthroid and feel so much better.
