I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid after my youngest daughter was born in 2008. I was put on 50mg daily and have been on the same dose up until 5 weeks ago. I started to suffer from the most awful fatigue and had absolutely no energy and could barely function. My GP told me to increase my thyroxine to 100mg daily. I must admit that I am now feeling much less tired and can almost function normally again however, I have gaines over a stone in weight in 5 weeks. As smeone who gas always struggled with my weight and tried so hard to lose wight previously I am distraught that I am unable to control the weight gain and how fast it is going on. I am tempted to reduce back to 50mg again as I am not sure what is worse....the tiredness or the weight gain. Any advice would be grateful. Thankyou.x
