It is important that you consult your doctor for blood tests to determine if your thyroid condition is treated adequately. A low thyroid count/underactive thyroid will be responsible for all the above symptoms. Further blood tests should be done, to eliminate other possibilities, i.e. low iron count etc.

In the interim you can try Sibelium capsules for the chronic headaches.

It is very important that you consult your doctor to have your symptoms investigated.
