I have hypothyroid as well. It can cause skin, hair, eyes to all dry out. It can also cause lethargy, weight gain, and other symptoms. I have depression, too, but I don't know if they are connected.

I am finally on the right dose of synthroid after years and I can tell a difference already.

Yes, the tiniest bit of under activity can cause all of those problems. How tiny are your numbers? What are they? Were you prescribed medication?

its good your doc put you on meds. he probably wants to see you back in not too long to recheck your level to make sure that your level is in the normal range
