My grandson was just diagnosed with a very rare leptin gene disorder that only a handful of people in the world have had. I also have an undiagnosed condition that I believe is hypothyroidism. I have all the symptoms and I was wondering if there is a connection to the leptin disorder and hypothyroidism? Last August I was in good health working out 90 minutes a day and did a total relandscape of my yard. I was very active with little limitations. I am now so limited physically that i can't sweep the kitchen without feeling totally exhausted and need to rest. My mental fog is so bad I forget the simplest things like my husbands name. My doctor told me that since I quit smoking that my body was in a state of negative reaction o the fact that I don't smoke anymore. I say horse s*** to that. I have never heard of health diminishing from doing the right thing good diet exercise and no smoking or drinking. I want my life back I need my stamina and breath back, I need to exercise but can't do it physically. I have a family history of thyroid disease and heart disease, and my doctor wont listen to me. He sent me a letter telling me to join a gym and in a few months I would feel better. He doesn't understand I love to exercise I am not capable or i would. Any advise?
