Well, if you were hypothyroid it could lead to very low energy and to feeling down. If you don't have adhd
/ add and you are taking ritalin
) it could have a stimulant
effect that would help to lift your focus, your low energy and your mood
. Ptsd can definately be a cause for difficulty with concentration and memory
. However, it is best to treat the cause of the ptsd, rather than just taking a stimulant. I am glad that you are going to get a medical check up. Since you also have ptsd, it would be in your best interest to see a psychiatrist for a comprehensive evaluation with medication recommendations. Good luck.
