Hi all, I'm new to this forum and needed to vent.
I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and Hashimoto's (though that was in small writing on the lab report and the doctor didn't even mention it) in 2014 and have been struggling with weight issues and fatigue and brain fog ever since, even though I was put on Synthroid once the TSH levels indicated I had hypothyroidism (I probably had it for years before that). I thought I was finally going to get the right dose when she upped it to 100mg of Synthroid last month from 75mg but my test yesterday shows I am still on the low end of the normal range and I'm gaining weight as fast as ever. Is it fair that I have to work out every single day (a tough sweat pouring down my face workout) in order to try to appear a semblance of normal sized, with fat still oozing over my pants while many other friends eat whatever they like, it seems, no workouts, and are still skinnier than me. And it appears my cholesterol levels are high too, so it's more than just a weight issue, though that is what I care most about. I also spent the majority of my long weekend sleeping, as I was very tired and didn't get the projects done that I was hoping.
I hope she will up the dosage again to maybe 125mg, but will this work? I don't know.
I am just frustrated and losing hope.
