I hope this posts to the Family Medicine Doctor forum.
Dear Dr. Keyes of the Family Medicine forum,
I'm 27 and I'm tired all the time, sleep about 8:30PM-8:30AM and my body wants even longer, I wake unrefreshed, take naps in the day, lack energy and motivation, family history of fatigue and thyroid problems on my Mom's side but I'm yet diagnosed. I also have other symptoms of hypothyroid. I eat well and do some walking excercise, and have healthy friendships. A few years ago moved out of a stressful unhealthy living environment. I haven't been to a doctor in a long time but plan to go to a new MD.
What does it sound like? I suspect hypothyroid and plan to get tested. What else could it be?
