Symptoms can include:

extreme tiredness
hair loss (which carries on after 6-9 months after childbirth)
weight gain
constipation

I had all these symptoms but put it down to working and having young children and all the running around the two entail. It was only when I mentioned my hair loss to the gp that a test was done. I think I may have had it undiagnosed for a few years Sad

memory loss
problems with your hearing
lack of sex drive
eyebrows thinning at the ends
skin becoming rough and dry
these are some more symptoms we have to put up with Rolling Eyes

I was diagnosed 6 weeks after having Amy and had put most of my symptoms down to lack of sleep. My doctor thinks i had it for ages before it was picked up so why was it never noticed with all the blood they take when you are pregnant Suspect

thats good you have found a support group to talk things through with. (wish I could find one for everything going on here just now- plenty for the suffers but not the family)
