I am so sorry you are feeling so bad and going through such a hard time. Have you consulted an Endo about your concerns? I am new to this whole thing too but I am sure your Endo can lead you in the right direction as far as the next step if all meds fail. What meds have you been on so far?

I'm pretty sure you can go higher with synthroid... but I'm not certain, I'm on Armour. Someone else should know...


EDIT: and it will be very difficult (if not impossible) to lose weight until your thyroid is in it's sweet spot. Keep in mind once your thyroid is good too, the weight won't just fall off.
