For the last couple of years I have suffered from tremendous sensitivity to the cold. My hands often turn lovely purple/blue colours, and I’m often wearing multiple layers of clothing when others are nice and comfortable. Now you’d say my BF % is too low, right? Wrong - it has been hovering between 10% and 18% throughout the last couple of years. Also, I am constantly irritable. Everything seems to piss me off, and I guess you could say that I’m often not nice to be around (and I can’t help this, as much as I try). Sometimes this type of behaviour has led me to think I’m depressed, or that I let the bodybuilding lifestyle prevail too much and rule my life. However, I try to keep as much balance as possible, and tend to think the problem is more physiological (yes, depression is a physiological illness too, but…). Additionally, I’m often fatigued and feel really run down. Over the past couple of years I’ve always been trying to shed fat - often with problems (sometimes I thought it was seemingly impossible). Many of the things I’ve just listed are symptoms of hypothyroidism.
Consequently, I think I may have that condition. Does anybody here have any experience with hypothyroidism or even suffer from it? I am going to make an appointment to see my doctor this week and ask his opinion, and hopefully get a blood test.
