Over the past 8 weeks I have put on 8 pounds in weight which is completely unaccounted for (my calorie intake is around 1300-1500 a day so I'm hardly gorging myself!). I have also had concurrent problems with joint pain and aches and increased tiredness.
Yet another blood test result (there have been many thyroid function tests over the years) has returned as normal (TSH - 2.56 - range of 0.3-4.5 and T4 - 12.4 - range of 10-22).
Given I'm a 53-year-old woman I suspect I'll be told it's the menopause, but this is especially galling as it took me ten months to lose 10 pounds in weight fairly recently so for it to go back on while not adjusting my diet and also so suddenly is particularly depressing.
I'm now stumped as to what to do next, though I do have an appointment with my GP in a couple of weeks and have been asked to weigh myself and monitor the changes on a daily basis.
Any thoughts or wisdom out there would be gratefully received.
