....anything about memory loss and when to worry. My memory is getting really bad. I am 32. In the past week (for example) my mom has asked me twice what I cooked for dinner the night before and it took me at least five minutes before I could remember. I forget which bills I have paid from month to month. It is really starting to scare me. These are just some things I can think of.

I also have a thyroid problem, which they say is fine now with my medication. I just keep feeling like they are keeping me at the low end of normal. I have no energy, and I am always sleepy.

I also have some pain in my fingers. I shouldn't be getting arthritis at 32 should I?

My eye doctor just told me recently that I had dry eye. I read in a pamphlet that it could be linked with rheumatoid arthritis. I have also noticed some skin changes, really old looking. Which could be an age thing, but I have always been mistaken for much younger than I am, so I keep thinking there is more to it.

I know I sound like a hypochondriac mess. I also know that I need to go to the doctor, but I would like to have some things to discuss with him when I do. If anyone has any information on any of these things being linked together, I would very much appreciate it.

The memory problems and lack of energy highly suggest that your thyroid is NOT ok, contrary to what you have been told.

Have you taken your basal body temperatures lately - are they in the basement? Sometimes blookwork will come back normal, but a low BBT is the only measurable sign that you thyroid is still underactive.

Thanks for the reply. No, I have never heard that taking a BBT would tell me that it was low. Sounds like I could learn a lot from you.
