I was diagnosed with an over active thyroid back in 2009. I was on carbimazole for a good 3 years before the hospital took me off it. Starting on 20 and lowering gradually. When I came off it I lost over a stone in weight and went from a 10-12 to and 8-10. My thyroid levels then began to rise again and so I went back on the tablets which made me gain weight so I stopped them and refused to take them. My thyroid got worse and my symptoms got worse, including thinning of my nails and hair so in the end I decided to go back on them. I have been put on the highest dose I have ever been on - 30mg. I have also gained almost 2 stone in weight and I am the largest I have ever been at a size 14! I'm so depressed! I am certain it's down to the tablets!! I just seem to be getting bigger and bigger and even eating a healthy diet it doesn't make a difference. My doctor and the hospital say that the weight gain is down to my standard metabolism rate but I have never been this big and i cannot shift the weight! I feel like an idiot blaming it on my tablets! Does anyone else have this prOblem x
