Constant Weight Gain

From: Bruzz88 - 4 years 47 weeks ago

Hello I just turned 28 years old and a little less than 2 years ago I was hospitalized for a serious thyroid condition. I was down about 60 pounds to 140 and had every symptom you can think of. It also cause hypercalcemia which was causing me to vomit everything I ate and drank for about a month until I finally was hospitalized. So I was being treated with meds for about a year and was gaining all my weight back in probably less than 6 months. Than my doctor told me I was getting hypothyroidism from the meds and to stop them. There were a lot of issues with this doctor but I'm not going to get into that. So I have been off all my thyroid meds for about 5 months now but am still constantly gaining weight, I'm tired and achy. I am now up to about 240 pounds which is the heaviest I have been my whole life I have never been above 205, and no matter what I do I keep gaining weight. I consider myself pretty healthy I don't smoke or drink, I have drugs in the past but haven't touched them in 3 years. I was in the hospital a couple of months ago because of trouble breathing from pneumonia and they checked my thyroid and they said it was at 2.6 and that is normal. What I am looking for is if someone knows a endocrinologist in the queens or Long Island area. I was on Medicaid previously but now have private health care from my employer. I already tried a new doctor but the only I got out of him was a 700$ bill because he sent my blood work to an out of network lab. I am just wondering if anyone also had problems where they went from hyperthyroidism to hypothyroidism because I can not think of any other reason for the constant weight gain and being so tired.
