I actually just found out a month or so ago I had one. I was gaining weight like crazy and had no idea why. So I went to my doctors and they had me get some blood work done. They told me I had an underactive thyroid. They also said that it happens to alot of women during labor. I am now taking something called levothyroxine for it. It is helping with the weight gain, but I was recently told that most people who are on it have to stay on it for the rest of their lives.... I really hope not. I hate taking pills.
