Lymphedema & Hypothyroid

I have read the posts on here about lymphedema and not much advice has been given. Please help me if you can.

I am female. age 31. 5'4'. dark hair... early graying. 230 lbs. sensitive to cold, sensitive to noise, sensitive to light. forgetful.

A year ago I started to gain weight... I went from 160 lbs to my current 230 lbs in a year. I binge eat... can't stop eating until I am stuffed. I have itchy ears with liquid draining... worse on the left. In January 2009 I gained 15 lbs over night... water weight around my lower legs and feet {worse on the right}. In May I gained another 15 lbs overnight.. more water retention... my legs are so heavy it is hard to walk at times... they burn from fullness.
I got checked out by a doctor and I have a hypo thyroid but they are not giving me meds yet. My average body temperature first thing in the morning is 95.9'F. I am always tired... have a really hard time functioning because of fatigue. I also have a lose of taste... I need strong salt or sweet for it to taste like anything at all. I am sleeping an average of 9 hours each night. I am easily irritable and desire to be left alone, yet I desire to be with others. I have had no sexual desire for the last year. I have become very forgetful... my husband thinks I am not paying attention that is why I am forgetting what he has told me.
I am cool all day.. I always wear a sweater over a t-shirt. I get muscle cramps in my calves {wrose on the right}. I have thin, brittle fingernails and brittle hair. I have not been sweating much at all over the coarse of the last year... not even when I work hard. I have dry, itchy skin. I have constipation.

If you can help I would be so thankful.

thankyou so much for replying Kadwa. I have both of those remedies in the house at 200c strength in liquid. I will have to try to get those strengths first and then I will report back. Thanks again.
