I am 19 years old and was told that i could have a thyroid disease at 15 and I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism at 18 everyone says with hyperthyroidism u lose weight, but I have a problem losing weight I seem to be gaining.. I always feel like I have no energy,I feel tired but have a hard time falling asleep and when I do fall asleep I oversleep,I have a hard time concentrating,my face turns red and its dry,my whole body is itchy,my vision is blurry,I sweat alot I really dont like going out much its embarassing soon as I step out the door I sweat so badly,my hands and feet are always cold,i go pee alot,I get nervous and have a hard time talking to people,I dont like being around people,Im emotional and depressed,I have body aches exspecially in my wrists,I have problems being in heat and even air conditioner I feel like i cant breath,and i have hair loss and my hair hasnt grown... When i was in school I was always the last one to finish or sometimes I wouldnt finish and have to turn in my work the next day.. so i was wondering since it causes u 2 have lack of concentration is tha the reason or would that be A.D.D? because i want to go to college but I am not sure about it just with my experience in high school with the whole lack of concentrating....

  • Not sure if you have a doctor, but liver enzymes might need to be checked, along with diabetes screening..
