Hi. I am a 25 year old woman. I was born with hypothyroidism and i have taken the hormone replacement my whole life. In the past couple of years things have gotten out of wack. My thyroid has grown to 4 times it's normal size and has grown nodules. My endocrinologist said that was nothing to worry about. She did place me on a higher dose to try to shrink the gland. Which has made me feel crazy. I go about every 3-6 months to get a check up and I tell her every time about my symptoms. My hair is falling out more than ever, I sweat ALOT, I have anxiety, depression, heart palpitations and consipation. I just feel like I shouldn't have to feel this way. Has anyone else felt this way? If so what helped? Removal of the thyroid? Thanks in advance
