I was hoping someone could give me some advice. I am a 22 year old female who is otherwise very healthy. For about 5 weeks I have had symptoms of hypothyroid (weight gain, fatigue, dry hair, depression). I had TSH and T4 done. TSH was almost 0 (0.03). T4 was fine (average to high).
My doctor said to wait another 6 weeks to have another test as it appeared I have hyperthyroidism and the symptoms don't fit.
In teh meantime my symptoms are still there, and I'm putting on weight at an alarming rate (1-2lbs per week) even though I am trying very hard to eat less given the situation.
I think its quite obvious I need more tests and treatment at the moment rather than waiting it out.
Does anyone have any advice? I have seen another doctor but they also said to wait 4-6 weeks given the results.
Does anyone have any advice on how to stop your body from gaining weight? Otherwise, does your weight return to normal when you go on meds or do you have to work it off?
