Help with thyroid symptom

I was recently diagnosed with Hypo. thyroid problem. I used to have an adrenal issues and had to take steroids. That has subsided, I still have issues but I have been off the steroids for about 4 months. My questions is I am having symptoms of the "moon face" swollen and feeling like I am caring extra water wait like I am on the steroids. Could this be a symptom of the tyroid problem.? Does anyone know. I have others, tired, hair brittle, hair getting thin, very dry skin. I just don't understand the swollen water wait. I mean last test I had my adrenals were still running low (I do suppliments)Can any one help me?

Re: Help with thyroid symptom

Are you taking any thyroid meds? Sounds like your FREE thyroid levels may not be optimal and if you are on meds you may need a dose adjustment.
Be sure that they treat your thyroid based on the FREE T3 and FREE T4 not just the TSH.
