: i guess i wonder if my tsh being 7.5 and the only sympton i have is alot of anxiety and alot of hunger. i maybe hypoglycemic too so that could explain my excessive hunger. i feel fine other then the anxiety, does anyone else have just anxiety oris anxietyeven a symptom of hypothyroid? also i have had gained a few pounds but have stabilized with better eating. my dr. says i can start on the synthroid when i am ready. i have heard that synthroid can cause weight gain, my dr. said only because you start to feel better and maybe then eat better. i just don't know what to do, i'd love the anxiety to go away and the excessive hunger too, but i don't know what is what and if it or either is a symptom, any help i'll appreciate it so much................thanx jamie..............
Your TSH indicates you are hypothyroid. Usually with hypothyroid you gain weight easily and can have depression. Anxiety can be a symptom of hyperthyroid so it is unlikely that your anxiety is due to a thyroid problem. Synthroid can help you lose weight that you might have gained from being hypothyroid.
