I was recently just diagnosed with severe thyroiditis and I am having heart arrhythmias. I just started a very low dose of levothyroxin and I just have read a lot into it. Before taking it My hair is very brittle, I've gained over 20 pounds in 3 months, my hands having broken skin all over them, my joints hurt, my memory is very foggy, and I can sleep over 18 hours a day if I have the day off. I'm only 22 years old and I am now extremely depressed because by just looking at all the forums it seems like all I have to look forward to are pills, being fat, being tired, being miserable and possibly losing some hair.. Can someone please give me some motivation to not just think this is how the rest of my life will be. I'm so upset.
