Re: i feel like i am going crazy

Are you taking thyroid meds? it may be that you need them or a dose bump up. Go back to your dr and ask for new bloods to be taken and then go from there.

"Fine" is a matter of opinion when it comes to thyroid levels. If your MD is testing only your TSH, the way the majority of MDs do, there's absolutely no way he can say you're getting enough hormone. He should be testing your free thyroid hormone levels too; if they aren't at least midpoint or above in their ranges, your thyroid can't be considered fully replaced.

You may not be doing anything "wrong". If your weight is being caused by low thyroid levels, you will have trouble losing it until your levels are optimum for you.
