Depression and Thyroid disease

From: queenkells - 6 years 29 weeks ago

I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism/graves disease in 1996. I was 18 years old. I thought I was a normal teen and that the symptoms were something that everyone my age was experiencing. Clearly I was wrong and after many tests and pills I finally accepted that I would forever deal with this disease. Fast forward and I am now in my early 30s and I am being told my thyroid is in remission. The crazy thing is that although my tests come back 'normal', I don't feel normal. I am still struggling w/my menstrual cycles, sleep patterns, hair loss and most recently depression. I remember having the same issues when I was first diagnosed but shouldn't the symptoms decrease if my thyroid has become 'stabilized'?
