: Recently I had bloodwork done and had a high TSH score of 6.9. I have had some symptoms which are associated with hypothyroidism but I don't know if I am just reaching for an answer. I have been sick for about a year from what I thought was another illness but what is happening to me sounds a lot like it could be this. I am depressed feeling, I get muscle cramps/charlie horses, I am on the pill to help regulate my period, as well as several other symptoms. Can anyone give me more info about hypothyroidism and its symptoms? I would greatly appreciate any help people can give...this is all new territory to me! Thanks you!!
