I got diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism in October 2017 and started on 40mg of carbimazole each day and 25mg of propranolol.
In November 2017 I also found out I have Graves Disease.
I am now on 30mg of carbimazole due to my levels being normal.
I've put 2stone 7pounds on since my diagnosis and it's really getting me down now.
People did comment over Christmas when I saw them to exchange presents and comments where made but I had only put 1 stone on and that was the weight I was when I saw them 2 months before.
Now I'm at a point where I weigh over 16stone and I've never weighed this much even when I was pregnant and I ache everywhere. Daily tasks are even harder to do and it's really getting me down.
I told my doctor at Christmas about comments people had made and I was already reducing my calories and I'd been on 1500 calories a day for 3 weeks and still gained weight. She said I must be lying so I can't even go back to her.
Today I've started following slimming world and I'm hoping it makes a difference but I really don't know.
Last week I put 5lb on I'm eating normal like i always have and maintained in the past.
