More than one year ago, I experienced simultaneous depression, anxiety, with hormone levels going down due to menopause. My expensive, concierge doctor MISDIAGNOSED me with low thyroid and 5 days of thyroid pills sent me into over active thyroid and I lost more than 10 pounds rapidly, going down to 98. This was all muscle that was lost, my skin hung from my frame. It has taken me a year to get some of the weight back on. I do not like how menopause is considered "normal" as nothing about this has been normal for me. Everything hurts, food is my enemy as I am now diagnosed as gluten-intolerant on top of this. I'm on BHRT, but that only goes so far. I am tired of my whole body hurting.
