hypothyroid, weight gain41 year old female
HYPOTHYROIDISM: started on ARMOUR THYROID after I was diagnosed in 2001. Lost 25 lbs. and felt warmer but wanted to fix it with homeopathy. I was on PULSATILLA AND SEPIA 1M alternatively from 2000-.2005 since I also had postpartum depression. Quit ARMOUR THYROID and took only pulsa and sepia from June 2002-june 2003. Depression was better but gained back whole 25 pounds.
Started to take Levothyroxine 88 mcg and been on it since them but have gained 20 pounds since starting it.
I have been on Calcarea Carbonica since 2005 but it is not helping much.
I have FOOD REFLUX since childhood. Following are the other problems I have:
Always cold especially hands and feet (take feet out of the covers at night because they feel hot)
Very dry skin especially hands and feet
Dry hair and dandruff
Premature graying of hair at the age of 30
Water retention especially on lower part of legs and feet
Dizziness and trouble with walking coordination for last 3 weeks
Tired all the time especially evening
I am ready to quit LEVOTHYROXINE and try a different remedy especially for weight. Please help.
