Over the course of 6 months, I lost an inordinate amount of weight. Approximately 20lbs (or 17% body weight). I am 32yrs old, 5'2" and have remained at a consistent weight of 115-120 my entire adult life.
I now weight 97lbs.
I have been tested for a myriad of things.. Mammogram, chest xray both came back clean.
Blood work has ruled out thyroid issues.
Cortisol levels are in normal range (ruling out Addison's disease)
My doctor is not finding anything and beginning to act as if this may just "be normal", but I am certain it is not. Although the weight loss has plateaued, I am unable to gain weight now. I upped calorie intake, fats, proteins; lift small weights for muscle growth, and nothing has worked.
I reach days where I will cross the 100lb mark, but within a day or two, I am right back to 97-98lbs. The weight never stays on.
I don't really have any overt symptoms. Fatigue and sweating (A LOT - but only sometimes/some days) is really it.
I'm at a loss and feel there must be something underlying going on here. Any guidance would be appreciated greatly!
