I went to my pcp because i have had fatige and inability to loose weight which has gotten worse in the past few months more so in the last couple of weeks. My dr did blood work and tested my TSH, and my Free T4 and my levels came back super low TSH and really high T4 so she ran a TPO (thyroid peroxidase antibody) which came back super super high like 100 times the limit. So to my suprise I would be considered hyperthyroid. I am being referred to an endocrinologist and am waiting on my referral to be processed and the endo dept to call me to schedule an appt. Everything I have read about hyperthyroid is that I should be basically on the go altogather along with uncontrolable weight loss. I worked out on my eliptical yesterday for about 20 minutes and got a pretty good workout but not to the extent of how it made me feel later on that day. About lunch time my whole body was COMPLETELY drained of engergy and I felt like I could hardly hold my head up it was awful! Along with being so incredibly tired it was amazingly hard to fall asleep! My hair is not thinning nor are my eyes bulged so I do not have those symptoms I read regarding graves disease but the fatige and weight struggle is unreal! Wondering if anyone can shed some light on why if i have a overactive thyroid that i cannot lose weight ( i am considered obese) and I am so incredibly tired all the time. I am at the point lately where my house has gone to crap because I literally have to pick and choose what I am going to expend my energy on since i have next to none! Please help!
Very, very tired sad person
