I have hypothyroid caused by hashimoto's disease. I get my tsh, t3, reverse t3, t4, and antibodies tested every two months. This helps keep determine which dose of meds to be due to the constant changing numbers caused by the hashimotos.

Side effects of hypothyroid: constipation, crabby, irritably, no patience, leg pain, dry/brittle hair that snarls alot in the back by the base of the neck, no energy, intollerence to cold (I never had this one!), extreme fatique, brain fog, depression.

Keep in mind there are side effects with the medication, too.

My suggestion: go see an endocrinologist as soon as possible and MAKE SURE they check your antibodies. Mine went unchecked for five years! A new doc checked them on my first visit and discovered the Hashimotos.

Let me know if I can help. Good luck to you.

I have a severe case of hypothyroidism. I have been on Synthroid for about 2 years and have still been able to lose 100 lbs, so it's not impossible to lose weight if you have this disease. Like the last poster said, she needs to make sure she gets her bloodwork done regularly and just stay on top of it.

Step #1 Find a great endocrinologist. This is the most important step. You need a doc that goes by how you feel and not what your labs say.

Step #2 Find a great support group. This is as equally important as #1. Sometimes you can feel really lonely and depressed because you can't explain how you feel and no one understands unless they've already been there.
I am also part of a team on this website. It helps so much to talk to people who are experiencing the same things. I've already lost 8lbs.

Step #3 Eat the right foods. After I was diagnosed I bought a book on "eating clean" and the "glycemic index" they have helped me so much.

Step #4 Exercise Exercise Exercise now matter how tired you are.

According to Srini Pillay, MD, Harvard Medical School: "It works in a real way with how human psychology works...I love that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function... without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains."
