New to having Underactive Thyroid.
Had two blood tests - Dec 2015 and April 2016 due to my late mother who was taking medication for under active and the results were on the borderline for under active thyroid. Only by my sis in law who is also under active said for me to get another blood test and should start taking Levothyroxine tabs and due to this result I am now taking 50 mg for which I stated taking 3 weeks ago.
Unfortunately have gained weight and feel self conscious about myself and constantly changing my tops to find out which one I will look ok in due to my stomach looking bloated when I am getting ready for work or going out and getting very frustrated with this. I suppose I will need to be patient and hope this will change. Will be having another blood test in July and need to make sure to ask GP for a printout of results for me to understand this. I had written them down when I wasn't able to be given these as a printout when I phoned my Doctors Surgery but was given them over the phone can't find where I have written this.
Has anyone else found this confusing and too much to take in?
