I am a 50 year old female, all my life I have had NO problem with weight. I have always been very active,happy and outgoing, In sept. 2006 my weight was 123lbs, I am 5"5" tall. that has been my weight my whole adult life, by dec 2006 i weighed 165lbs. when I first noticed myself gaing weight i dieted and exercised but kept gaing weight. finally went to the Dr in Jan 2007. run bunches of blood work, x rays, CT's. ultrasounds, had a radioactive iodine uptake test, Well everything showed I was hyperthyroid with a multinodular cystic goiter. I was placed on synthoid for three months to see if somehow my body would counteract what it was doing, but it didn't. since then nothing has really been done. I have a scan and ultrasound every six months. My Dr. saids it needs to come out, but the Surgon saids it not bad enough.
I am so misriable now i am at 183lbs, no energy, mentally I feel drained, physically I feel like crawling in bed and never getting up.
I just wih someone could make me feel like I use to. I know I will never be the same as I once was but something close would be good.
