I had a TT 2 years ago this month. I never suffered from any thyroid symptoms before they removed my thyroid and it was removed due to a large goiter. Ever since then things have been a rollar coaster ride from me and just when I was starting to feel better...there goes my TSH again! This past summer 2014 I was feeling amazing and my TSH was 1.89. My endo was pleased and didn't want to see me again till this April. However, come October I started too feel lousy but yet I waited to call my endo. In December, I gave in and called my doctor and I had blood work which showed my TSH was 5.5. So she raised my dose to 175 of synthroid. I went back six weeks later and my TSH didn't budge! It was 5.4!!! She she raised it again. Well to make a long story short I still feel terrible and now I have gained 10 lbs in one month! I'm a small woman and I'm what my family and friends term "health freak". I work out 6 days a week and eat very healthy (no sugars, white carbs. lots of greens, veggies, fruits). I'm just really upset that my clothes are not fitting and that I no longer look like the fit woman I work hard to be. Any suggestions or advice?
I go back for my next blood test this week.
