    At 19, I was diagnosed with low thyroid and every since then I developed alot of symptoms. The ones that scare me the most is the mental symptoms. I have gotten anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts and etc. I feel extremely tired all the time and like I'm out of touch with reality. I don't know what to do. I've been to doctors and they say my thyroid is fine, but what else can it be. Can mental symptoms just manifest this way? I look up symptoms of thyroid and they all match, i also had a false positive ra factor. I just don't know what to do and get get help from doctors and this is holding my life back. Why am i not getting better after 4 years?
