Do the symptoms ever get better? Is weight loss surgery an option for me?? Is it possible to have ADD and Hypothyroid? 35 year old female. Diagnosed with hypothyroid in 2007 by a bariatric doctor who was treating me for obesity. TSH was over 8. Started with 75 mcg of synthroid, went up to 100 mcg and felt great, losing weight all was good. Lost my job and had to stop going to bariatric doctor (because they are self pay - insurance wont cover weight loss - $100/week is expensive w/ no job), then my PCP started treating me. Much to my pleading not to - He had my tsh level checked it was 2.9 and he reduced my synthroid to 75 mcg and changed from synthroid to levothyroxine. Since this change, I have felt horrible, all the symptoms I had before i started treatment are back, joint pain, cold, constipation, dry hair, gained back all the weight I lost (60 pounds in less than 5 months). Now I have new symptoms, eye twitching, migrains, shortness of breath, excessive yawning, tired (cant even get through the day w/out a nap), boils on my privates (yes gross) and some serious ADD symptoms (had power turned off becuase i forgot to pay the bill, forget to do things people ask me, lost job because i cant focus long enough to complete a project, procrastination, worry, guilt, interrupt people who are talking, impulsive), depression, crying for no reason, mood swings, complete loss of sex drive. My PCP put me on South Beach diet, and I gained 15 pounds in 3 weeks. I work out at the gym 4-5 days a week for at least 1 and 1/2 hours (treadmill, elliptical, weights), Im up to 240 pounds, went to PCP he said I just want a magical pill to get rid of the weight - not so much - Ive never ever even mentioned or asked for any pills - I did a liquid diet for 8 months with no pills- and I have "dieted" since I was in 7th grade - Im 35. I am going to an endocrinologist on the 20th of July, and Im hopeful she can help me - but at this point - I just want anyone to listen to me other than my husband who sees what i go through. I am considering gastric bypass or banding as a last resort - I am desperate to feel good and after 10 years of being over 230 pounds, my body is taking a beating. I went back on the liquid diet last month, and I lost 4 pounds in an entire month. ANY HELP OR SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!
