Avatar n tn when i turned about 41, i began to gain weight and went from 98lbs to a whoppin 125 (that was a weight gain of 1/4 of my body weight,it was shocking!) and have stayed there no matter what i have done. it was for me, my metabilism changing...but that weigh was also evenly distributed, unlike what you have just discribed. as for the abdomen, as i said earlier, do you have discomfort with this? i suffered from alot of painful bloating for years which i was 'told' was hep related.
Avatar f tn My blood type is also O+. I found out my blood type after I enlisted in the military plus I found my blood type on my birth certificate. I do suffer from depression and I do have anger issues but I am managing both with therapy. I know when I don't eat, I do get very cranky. I've never had a manic episode but there are times when I was darn near close. I had to remove myself from particular situations or else it may have landed me in jail. Simply because I skipped lunch.

Avatar n tn I had a hyster in 05. Same situation as all of you. I have gained 23lbs after working at Weight Watchers and losing 52lbs in 03. I have started researching weight gain and hysterectomies just yesterday. I am a Christian, believer in JC.
1257808 tn?1322765815 Thyroid does have a huge affect on your metabolism rate and thus your weight. Too high and you can loose weight, too low and you'll gain weight. Thyroid is also associated with mood including depression and anxiety. Some people can get off of or have no need to take anti-depressants or anti anxiety medicine simply by getting their Thyroid levels balanced correctly. However there are other hormones in your body as well. They all have to be in proper balance and that can be tricky.

Avatar n tn What a whammy! A miscarriage, and then you GAIN weight? Doesn't it seen like it should go the other way? Well I am very reassured to read these postings. My miscarriage happened January 11, and since then I've picked up a good 7 lbs (only gained 2 in pregnancy). I've always had a "healthy appetite" but have been able to get away with it by running 12+ miles a week. If I gained a pound, I ran a little extra and off it came. Not the case any more!
Avatar n tn My partner has been enduring chronic diarrhea, weight gain, abdominal pain, being cold all of the time(even cold to the touch), and she has been through the gamut of testing. The doctors we have seen don't seem to care. She has 10-20 bowel movements every day and she is so fatigued and sad. I am in need of help or where to go for help for her.
Avatar n tn After avoiding zoloft, I was walking 9 miles a day, but, w/o any weight loss.... In the end, Zoloft reduced depression/anxiety, weight gain started to create anxiety issues. In the long term, zoloft seemed to be quite ineffective.
Avatar n tn so i took my last dose of depo in march i wonder will i gain any weight back because i look like a child.
Avatar n tn I'll be 46 at the end of this month & just moved to a new state so I don't have the luxury of knowing any doctors. In the last 1-2 months I suddenly gained 40 + lbs & look pregnant. That seems to be where the weight all is. A urinalysis proved negative for pregnancy on Monday & with my 3 grown kids I did not gain this much weight &/or so fast. I just look pregnant & feel "full - heavy - tired & short of breath" most of the time.
Avatar n tn Most frustrating, I've noticed that since I stopped taking both, my weight gain has accelerated. Any ideas as to how long I need to endure this or ideas for correcting my metabolism? Thanks.
Avatar n tn The reason I ask is that there are certain meds, like antidepressants that can cause weight gain and / or make it very hard to lose weight while on them. I know this from personal experience. magkenmare, I am going to talk to my sister as soon as I can and then post again. I know that my mother is doing the South Beach diet, but my sis, because she has diabetes cannot follow it to a "t". She mentioned something like she is doing a variation of it.
Avatar n tn I thought it was because the kids were ome for the summer,and the were sucking the life out of me and I thought once they were back a school, I would get back to my old self. I didn't it got worse, I slowly started to gain weight, even though I was working out, and theu disgusted, and therefore i didn't workout as hard as I ued to. I became very dpressed very exhausted and basicaaly hated life. I have a geat life, there was no reason to feel this way.
Avatar n tn When the thyroid is hyper - the metabolic rate is falsely elevated, making it easy to lose/maintain weight. Once corrected, the metabolism falls back to "normal" and unless eating habits also adjust many patients gain weight. The RAI can make a patient hypo even 1-2 years after treatment -- what is your TSH -- a level above 2.5 might be "hypo" for your body and getting on some thyroid medication may be appropriate.
Avatar n tn It is not a quick fix, people can die from the complications, and recurrent weight gain is not uncommon. That is why the board had to resort to putting in the disclaimer after the physicians response.
98010 tn?1305903335 When I exercise (not weight lifting) biking, walking, gardening, whatever, I gain weight. I see it, I feel it and so do other people. I become thicker not just heavier. I am 40 years old and wear a size 2/4. I have stayed thin by NOT exercising. I learned from the mistakes of a couple of older women in my family, with similar build as mine. They were always slender and were told to exercise because they were getting older and didn't want to loose muscle.
5147790 tn?1364308089 You might want to check with your doctor to get some simple blood tests to make sure you don't that hypothyroidism, insulin resistance or PCOS, all of which can cause weight gain and/or make losing next to impossible. Good luck and keep posting.
Avatar f tn I'm depressed all the time and just feel hopeless. Nobody believes me about the weight gain even though I show them pictures of what I really look like!! All these doctor's are treating different symptoms, but it's doing no good. I'm no antidepressants, and all of them I've been on do no good. I'm on sleep meds, and they barely work. I can't even work right now because I'm so tired all the time. Now, it seems that I have gastroentestinal problems, which I have never had before.
Avatar m tn Thank you for the reply. But... in your response you wrote: >>"why rant about being skinny anyway? THAT is something all middle-aged people want to be">> Well, ok... true enough maybe... but I think I didn't make myself clear... I have trouble keeping a normal weight WHILE keeping normal blood sugars... and I am a man who does not want to be "skinny" not only for my own, eh, "self-image" but mostly for my health.
981862 tn?1254978200 good news is that it can be reversed if you treat your body right again) and your body will learn to trust you. So you aren't going to suddenly gain a bunch of weight if you eat normally. It will take a little time, but your body will regulate and not have to try to compensate for what it's going through right now. Is this making sense? I feel like I'm doing a bad job explaining it. I can try again if it's not making sense.
8683847 tn?1410760916 I got a bad sunburn in 15 minutes when I was out in direct sunlight. Watch out for weight gain around your mid section which is what happened in my case and if you do make sure you let your doc know about it. Definitely felt a little bloated during the second and third months. The specialist up at Duke said he wanted me to get real skinny, no fat around the mid section so I'm now trying to get that to be a reality.
393685 tn?1425816122 Hi all. For me I just want to feel right and be healthy again and not be in constant pain. I have to agree with Diana3353 though. It's frustrating when the doctors want you to loose weight when you live with none stop pains. For my younger years I was VERY thin and I'm 5'.5". Eyes sunk in and the whole 9 yards. I used to force myself to drink weight gain when I weighed 87#'s to stay out of the hospital.
Avatar n tn sorry to have to meet under the circumstances but at least we all have a place to come and gain knowledge and support. I was just diagnosed about a month ago. I am a 51 year old female type 1a...I will have my biopsy this week and then the gi says that we will begin treatment.I am terrified but this forum has been a godsend for me....these people here are terrific!!! There are alot of us just beginning and as you read posts you will laugh...cry and begin to realize that we are not alone.
478225 tn?1208444756 and I don't know if this is relevant or not but I have a low haemoglobin ( did a blood test recently ) and I'm blood type O negative... The doctor there advised me to take a pill for the low blood count - Haemup Gems ..I take this pill whenever I remember, not quite sure its helping though... Oh and I did go to the doctor, She said it was coz' of my weight gain, and that i should try to lose weight... there was some discharge from my nipple, and she didn't say anything more on that matter...
Avatar n tn for a check up and my blood pressure was high and not to mention the weight gain. Well im pleased to say my blood pressure is back to BETTER then normal, but have not lost any weight. When i started taking effexor I lost weight....25lbs in less then 3 months... i was loving it! I was able to maintain my weight at 100 lbs for about 2 years there abouts, but then all of a sudden i started gaining out of no where. I now weigh 140 lbs im also 5'2".
Avatar n tn I haven't lost any weight, but I do feel like it helps me keep the smallest amount of control over my weight gain. Has anyone lost weight taking 1000mg? Is 500 just not enough? Would love hear from you. You can also email me.
