As some of you have seen mentioned before, I'm not in the greatest of Health, but it could be a lot worse, mostly things I just need to deal with.
Over the past few months I was starting to feel worse and worse, and it turns out that the problem that my mother and younger sister have has hit me.
Looks like the problem is my thyroid, that it's not working quite properly.
I still consider myself very lucky since my younger sister has had to by hospitalized the the issue and has had it for years. My thyroid has been fine up until now, I was hoping that the problem had skipped me.
I'll be starting meds today or tomorrow, so hopefully that will help. The doctor said she didn't think it was all that bad, just that I needed to get started on medicine.
I know that the problem can affect your weight, and that seems to be the case with me since I get exercise pretty much every day and would have normally been lost weight, but I've gained instead.
Anyone else have this problem? What has worked well for you? have you been able to loose weight in spite of it?
Can anyone offer insight from personal experiences?
