Our expert says:
I do suggest that you consult an endocrynologist for tests. You can ask your state doctor for a referral to one of the larger academic centres. You are absolutely right in thinking that your symptoms are due to an underactive thyroid. Therefore, it is important to get the correct treatment as soon as possible.
