I was on thyroid pills for about 3 yrs because I had an underactive thyroid and I was told I would have to take them the rest of my life, but my doctor took me off of them about a yr ago said my levels werent low enough anymore, and since then i put on about 20 pounds and feel like crap again , is it normal to have your doctor take you off thyroid pills, because everyone I know that is on them says no I should still be on them ?????
