I was diagnosed with graves disease a few years back and had RAI in August of 2012. I was then put on Levothyroxine for Hypothyroidism and since then I have gained almost 30 lbs. I do Zumba at least twice a week if not three and I go for walks with our dog and I still am not losing the weight. Also I have been put on Sertraline (Zoloft) for depression and anxiety. I've read in a forum about the two drugs and some say you shouldn't take them together and some say its ok. Im also tired all of the time. I wake up and eat breakfast and lay back down days I dont go to the gym. Even after i return home from the gym and errands im lay down and end up going to sleep. It's becoming very frustrating and idk what to do.
Anyone else have these type of issues?
****My dr ordered the TSH test only and now I have to go back for the free T4 & T3. Grr.....my levels for the TSH are 1.43. Apparently stilk good. His nurse tokd me to call my pcp because it's obviously something else that's making me have these symptoms. Ummm...I think I will wait and see. I've never been 154 lbs in my life at 4'11".
