That is how I too found out I was hypothroid. It turns out I have Hashimoto's syndrome, and the darn thing hardly works at all anymore without my meds.Originally posted by NickB
I got blood tests done (we thought i might be diabetic, but , i had high TSH levels which means i dont have enough thyroid hormone in my blood.
I don't know if you can get in the army though. But I had extensive knee surgery on both knees and was able to get into the Air Force. This was pre hypothyroid days.
Have you asked about this? The army, that is?
