Thyroid imbalance is a know cause of CFS, ADD, Cancer, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Adrenal Fatigue, depression, PCOS, etc. Still, most docs do not recognize it or perform the correct tests to test for it.
BTW...your thyroid test may come back normal. All of my thyroid blood tests that doctors gave to me came back normal, because I have enough thyroid hormones in my blood. I had to order my thyroid test from a lab that specializes in hormone testing and it proved that I did have low thyroid function (tissue resistance to thyroid hormones).In other word I have enough thyroid hormones in my blood, but it's not being converted into my tissues. You might want to ask you doc to give you a T3 test too, because it is the test needed to test for tissue resistance to thyroid hormones.
I used ZRT lab for my hormone testing.
Meds: Armour Thyroid, Hydrocortisone, and lots of supplements in addition to my multi-vitamins.
