I started both T3 and T4 meds about a month ago. I have been feeling much better over the past two weeks! I have much more energy and so I've been being more active; going on long walks etc...So, I decided this week to step it up a notch and go back to the gym because I feel I can do it without needing to nap for two days!
I've also been monitoring my diet better. I'm grazing more instead of eating big meals. Eating healthy proteins with high Omega 3 like tuna, lots of veggies, drinking lots of water etc.
I'M STILL GAINING WEIGHT! I got on the scale this morning and I want to cry. I've gained another 3lbs in the past month!!! I was heavy to begin with and now I'm at my heaviest EVER.
Do I keep exercising? I've been doing cardio because I love the exertion and I love to sweat (I tend to retain A LOT of water). It feels good to get some of that water out!
Also, one other possibly unrelated issue but I thought I'd throw it out because I'm realizing the Hypo can have a lot of weird symptoms...I've noticed that my right calf muscles are feeling almost injured. There are some tender lumps on the side and it feels like way deep in the main muscle there is a cramp or something. I stretch it but I can't even stretch the part that feels tight and tender. It's only on one side. I don't know if Hypo can hurt muscle but I thought I'd throw that out to see what folks think.
Any insights are appreciated!
