I am 22 yrs old and found out 8 months ago that I had hypothyroidism. I went to my doctor because I would fall asleep in the middle of the day for no reason and my hair was falling out. She put me on levothyroxine, a low dose, well it made my hair stop falling out. But it seems like scince I've been on these pills I'm still tired, I've gained at least 10 lbs, I have no energy, my bones hurt sometimes, and I'm moody. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do? I live in a small town but go to scottsdale arizona for my husbands orthopedic surgeon, does anyone know of a doctor I could see who accepts mercy care insurance? I've tried to find one but have had no luck and its getting frustrating to go from a energetic healthy mom and wife to this. Any suggestions or even doctor suggestions would help. Thank you.
