I am unsure whether it is the iron (ferritin) levels or the T4 or T3, or whether they're all linked?
For the last 9 years I have been going to the Dr complaining of fatigue, depression, concentration issues. I have been diagnosed with everything from ADHD, depression, anxiety, chronic fatigue.
What caused me to go back was because one of my managers saw me in the morning and pulled me up and said to me: "mate, if you ever need to talk about anything, you can always come and talk, it'll stay between us."
I was looking so pale and washed out that he thought I was almost at the brink of suicide, and I thought this is not right and I need to go back to the Dr and demand that I get evaluated again because the way I looked physically was not who I was mentally (I was not suicidal).
It was not until this Dr's visit (a different Dr) that he actually run the proper tests and figured it all out.
I have looked at the ultrasound images of my thyroid and even to an untrained eye like mine, I can tell there has been damage done.
The Dr has finally found what is wrong, has diagnosed the issue, but I am still the same as I was 3 weeks ago, 1 year ago etc... I have no treatment.
