Doing this with Hashimoto's disease is just weird

Saturday, January 28, 2017

I slept most of yesterday, and I hardly got out of bed even when I was awake. Maybe I needed rest. But I've lost weight since Wednesday because my metabolism is elevated again. I should remember that an elevated heart rate means an elevated metabolism. I slept because I doubled up on my heart medication and it made me a zombie.

I'm going to have to talk to my doctor about why suddenly the medicine I've been taking for two months doesn't work as well. Having an elevated metabolism is nice, but nothing that goes along with it is worth it. The loss of strength, balance, and any kind of mental clarity is just scary. Much more than weight loss, I'm here at Sparkpeople to counteract those side effects of a runaway thyroid.
