I do…never gained weight…feels cold most of the time and a lot of other complicationsposted over 2 years ago
Yes! the cold feeling has been sometimes really bad, sometimes i needed to wear hand gloves inside the house!
you are right, Hypothyroidism is not only the weight gain problem, actually i haven’t gain weight, but i have more not so nice symptoms. grrrrr!!!!! hate it!
jasmine19, oh i know the hyper sensation, anxiety was simply AWFUL! i have Hashimotos, and now i know that anxiety and depression are symptoms of this illness. The worst is that many of the doctors don’t link it with thyroid problems.
" Now researchers are exploring a somewhat controversial link between minor, or subclinical, thyroid problems and some patients’ psychiatric difficulties. After reviewing the literature on subclinical hypothyroidism and mood, Dr. Russell Joffe, a psychiatrist at the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System, and colleagues recently concluded that treating the condition, which affects about 2 percent of Americans, could alleviate some patients’ psychiatric symptoms and might even prevent future cognitive decline.

Yes, I suffer from hypothyroidism. I gained 15kgs/33lbs. I have now lost more then half of what I gained and I am aiming to lose another 10kgs/22lbs. I am on medication for it now and it is stable but it still makes me really sick quite often.posted over 2 years ago
I have hypothyroidism/Hashimotos. I was diagnosed when I was nine. I remember the first time I knew something was wrong. My parents and I were in a car at Martha’s Vineyard, off the coast of Massachusetts, either going to or from the ferry. It is the summer and I was freezing. The AC was on maybe a little, but I knew I shouldn’t be that cold. Also, my hair was always so thin. It would always fall out! If you think I shed a lot now, you should have seen me when I was 8! I take meds now and my hair is thicker and my body temperature is more self-regulated. I also have a low metabolism, but my low muscle tone adds to that. Even though there are so many complications, I am okay with it. I have no problems. I get blood drawn for testing to make sure my levels are good every year or so. I’ve been taking my meds since I was 9. You have no reason to be sad. This is something that can be controlled, whether it be with meds, holistically or through diet.
