Postpartum thyroiditis

Hi I gave birth 9 months ago i was diagnosed with Post partum depression, my therapist suggested me to see a endocrin, when my baby turned 8 months old my anxiety got worse, palpitations i feel like i'm having a heart attack, sometimes it's hard for me to swallow, my neck hurts and i have a weird sensation on my neck i can't explain, my eyes are sensible to sun light, i gain and loose weight without changing my diets, sometimes i feel my body and arms, legs, and neck chaky, i crave sweets all the time, i have night sweats, mood swings these symptoms seem to worsen when i get closer to my period, do you think i should test for postpartum thyroditis? I am on antidepressives and anti anxiety pills, which don't make a lot of difference.

You should definitely have your thyroid tested to see if this may be related to postpartum thyroid problems.
