I used to be very good at analysing situations and deducing

Resolved Question:

I used to be very good at analysing situations and deducing solutions and being able to assert my point in discussions, be at work or wit friends and family. But for couple of months now, I feel completely blank most of the times. I also do lots of stupid things and find it hard to process when some one is asking me a question. Sometimes cant even reply. I feel very weak and tired all the time. No historical health issues other than neck stiffness which I have been suffering for almost 2 years now. It is affecting my confidence a great deal. What could be it?

Thanks for your question.

This may be due to medical cause or due to psychological causes.

You may be suffering from low thyroid hormone disorder (hypothyroidism).

So please have your thyroid hormones checked as well as do a complete blood count.

Increased stress or a low mood may also be responsible.

The answers didnt help much. But thanks.
Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 10 months ago.

Dear customer,

They will help only when the mindfulness practice is done regularly. Also after the thyroid test if a low level is found then treating it will be immensely beneficial.

Take care.
