Firstly i am male 19 years old
So i have just been diagnosed with hypothyroid - under-active and i worked hard to get to 210lbs 6"5 recently within 4 months my thyroid got worse as doctors failed to spot it with all my symptoms and i dropped to 180lbs not a good look for a tall guy.
So basic i know not many people with hypo are looking to gain weight and muscle but if anyone has any slightest advice it will help i don't know how this works, if i should workout with hypothyroid or do we need rest etc.
I have been to the doctors multiple times with symptoms of thyroid problems, one particular doctor always said i was fine and when i came to the doctors one she said what now in a angry tone after only 3-4 visits within that 1-1.5 year time span. Sometimes she would even laugh after i told her my symptoms, so i stopped going to the doctors and she made me feel like a hypochondriac even though i knew something must be wrong, i had heart pain, somehow had rapid heart rate that slowed down over past 1 year, hair loss, facial twitches, could hardly keep up with my dad he's 45 who eats junk, i eat only organic healthy etc, i had tear through lines under eyes and puffy face, changing emotions, brain fog, extreme trouble paying attention staying on track, nervous etc wold always not cope with winter shivering and wearing mutiple layers when other had less and were fine,s low movements, thought and speech, pins and needles, dry eyes, loss of libido . Anyway i finaly shown up on the day of results and she looked very guilty and i knew i had hypo, so it made me not feel like such an idiot, just to anyone reading who is unsure if they have its always best to check no matter what.
Anyway anyone have advice i have trouble gaining weight and just want to build a more muscular body any advice welcome as i am completely new to this.
Docs have put me on 25mg levothyroxine, took first one today, hopefully this do sent increase metabolism even more
