Fatigue, weight gain, and mood changes are often mistakenly attributed to menopause instead of thyroid problems.
Before her thyroid diagnosis, Raelene’s doctor dismissed her symptoms, saying: “There’s nothing wrong with your thyroid. It's menopause.”
Lynn’s doctor echoed this. “But I was 62 and had a hysterectomy at 44. It was NOT menopause!”
Even though she was in her mid-thirties, Maureen’s doctor insisted it was menopause. “It took me over a year to finally get a thyroid diagnosis. Sigh.”
