I have all textbook signs of Hypothyroidism. I also have ADD/ADHD and take medicine which may cause Hyperthyroidism. I took a TSH test yesterday and will not hear back for a couple more days. I am worried that my results my show a false positive. Can medicine do that to the point of skewing results?
There are many studies and internet sites that correlate the two. They both give the same kind of symptoms in regards to concentration, no energy. Most of the studies I read talked about ADD/ADHD being misdiagnosed with thyroid problems. I spoke with my Doctor a few days ago and asked him if there was any relation and he said no. There is more evidence that points to a correlation.
What do you think?
Does anyone that has Thyroid problems also have ADD, or ADHD?
