hypothyroidism since highschool. I am currently on 250mcg. It seems like such a large dosage after reading other forums. I have had goiters before and had the radioative test and ultrasound in 2006. I am wondering if having my thyroid removed could possibly help my situation. I am overweight, with no strength or energy to exercise. I gain weight when I am eating healthier. There are some days, lately many, where I feel depressed, so foggy headed and cannot concentrate, and so tired, after only 2 hours at work, I return home to sleep. I need help. I don't know what else to do. When I go to the doctor, they only check my TSH and then up my dosage. I want to feel normal. I have forgotten what normal feels like.
