Hi Sara, I have never heard of anyone who was born without a thyroid gland. Have
you talked to your doctor about increasing your thyroid meds since you obviously still
have hypothyroid symptoms. ARe your thyroid lab tests normal? If so, there must be
something else going on and I would keep bugging my doctor until he/she helps you
or find a new doctor.
Read the post on this forum "possible thyroid disorder". I think hopetogetwellsoon has some

I have no thyroid due to it's removal and I still have some of those symptoms. It was removed 38 years ago. Make sure your doctor has you on the right level of meds. Also you may want to get your B12 levels checked.

I was also born without a thyroid. I too am overweight but have never had the lip issue you mentioned. Have you even seen a specialist? I take synthroid but I've recently considered adding some T3 medications.
