You didn't mention your age. Hypothyroidism and Menopause symptoms are very similar. Change Doctors. Go to Mary Shoman's web site on about.com. The thyroid home page. She has a list of Dr.s for your area (hopefully) that have a clue about hormones, thyroid in particular. You need a TSH, Free T3 and Free T4 test for thyroid. Don't let them tell you it is "normal" Get the numbers. Women do best with a TSH between 1and2. Free T3 should be 4-4.2. There is a great thyroid board here. Use it too. Good luck.
