Hi, I'm new to this site so ill give you all a wee background update .....
I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid 10 years ago...over the past ten years I have been taking 100 thyroxine tablet everyday until recently, after my yearly blood test I was increased to 125 which showed my thyroid levels were ok but my thyroid is working to hard so my doctor has increased me again to 150 per day....does that make sense??
I have put on 6 stone in weight in the past 4 years, going from a size 10 to an 18. I now hate the way I look and cant seem to lose any weight after trying numerous diets. I constantly feel down and low in mood, I cry a lot, iv been signed off work due to other medical reasons but I'm so glad as I feel I'm not coping with day to day stuff, everything is an effort, I also suffer from anxiety.
Please if anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them as I cant continue to live like this
