Hi all, I was diagnosed in summer last year, and man was it nice to see my symptoms fade, the most hated of all of them being uncontrollable, rapid weight gain.
Unfortunately my doctor wouldn't increase my dose when it was badly needed, so I self medicate. Everything had been good until the month and I have been on the same dose since October. I noticed my energy this month is dropping and my mood is swinging. Worst of all, I'm gaining inexplicable weight again.
I'm one of those that go by symptoms and temperature/heart rate rather than blood.
I remember from my old hypo days that I would always uncontrollably gain weight, despite rigid diets and exercise, in January and February.
Is it possible that the winter had given need for a dose increase?
