Hypothyroid and PCOS
Hi I'm new here and recently diagnosed with both hypothyroidism and PCOS.
I knew something was wrong when despite having no appetite and barely eating I gained 25 pounds in a very short time.I also had fatigue and depression,and doctors just wanted to throw antidepressants at me.
Now I'm on Synthroid and Metformin and have been able to lose about 10 pounds,but it seems as though I will never get back to the weight I was.I also still struggle with feeling tired often despite being told my levels are in the acceptable range.
I was just wondering if anyone else here suffers from both of these disorders as well.What you are taking for it, and if you feel anything has helped.It is very frustrating that I eat much less then most people and yet continue to be heavier.My boyfriend is a twig and he eats like a horse.
Doesn't seem to me like doctors know too much about these things and what causes them.
