do you have interest in daily activities, hows your sex drive, do you like going out... any recent lab tests like CBC or thyroid
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
i attend college daily and i like going out shopping, my sex drive is not that great the now as my partner doesnt like me this way and its affecting our relationship and i i have not had any tests done
Expert:  Salar replied 8 years ago.
well in that case you need to have thyroid level, b12 or folate check. also important to see a psychiatrist to have psycho therapy. if the above tests are good then using medicines like zoloft or cymbalta can help.

should i be having problems with my thyroid at my age as i am on 24yrs old and i ahve went to my doctor and they keep telling me its stress but i done a questionnaire thing on the nhs website and it says i have moderate depression, is there any way i can get thru this without ruining my life and relationship
Expert:  Salar replied 8 years ago.
thyroid can affect any age. before making a diagnosis of depression the above tests have to be done. even if it is depression you should be able to live healthy life on medicines / psychotherapy.
