I've been having symptoms of hypothyroidism: First off my grama used to have hypothyroidism. Being cold all the time (I can't finish my cereal without being cold) Being tired, not lazy. I could sleep over 13 or 14 hours if I let myself and the rest of the time awake I still feel tired. I drag myself out to go work out for an hour, I normally go on the bicycle for anywhere from a half hour to an hour. My hair has also been falling out in clumps as if it were cut and falling off, so showering and brushing my hair afterwords is depressing. I rarely eat junk food, if I buy a pop it goes flat before I can drink it all, and that's just a regular size pop. I also don't eat a lit of fast food. I weighed around 180 pounds four years ago and have been gaining weight for the last four years, I am not almost 225. Yesterday I got a blood test and today I was told my thyroid was fine. I was .22 or something like that.
If I'm "fine" how do I fix my symptoms? I'm tired of being tired all the time! I'm not looking for a 'miracle pill' to loose the weight, could I still go on a thyroid pill or is it not an option?View Thread
