Avatar n tn Physical Signs of Heart Disease Swelling of Your Feet and Lower Legs Retention of fluid in the feet and legs is known as peripheral edema. Edema may appear as "sock marks" at the end of the day. Mild peripheral edema is common. Your doctor may check for this sign by pressing a finger against your ankle or shin bone to see if a depression is left behind. This is called "pitting edema.
Avatar m tn If you are monitored on a regular bases that should not happen and that would be every 6 to 12 weeks until you reach the right level and dose for you to feel your best, not a 100%, but close. You might find a little weight gain once you have achieve your goal level. If weight is due to thyroid it is only a 10 to 15 lb concern and it night even level out after a while. Doctor Lupo will define. Hang in there!
Avatar f tn Hi my brother was recently diagnosed with Addison's disease after almost dying.

I have had extreme fatigue, nausea, occasional vomiting, diarhea and constipation, headaches, weakness, muscle aches and pains,decreased appetite, joint pains, chest pains, lower back pain, feeling disorientated as if someone has drugged me.
Avatar f tn Is this operation safe for him. Is it possible after surgery his weight will gain properly. Is there cause any problems after surgery in his future. After surgery will he lead a normal life. Pls help me.
Avatar n tn I am only addressing the thyroid levels. Which states you are hyperthyroid and T-3 toxicosis which is seen in Graves' disease. This could be the reason for your fatigue and possibly weight gain. Not all hypers lose weight. The solution for thyroid is to get treatment for the hyper side of the disease. Either RAI or ATDs. Surgery is an option with growing, hyperfunctioning nodule or thyroid cancer, which would entail more test to verify.
Avatar n tn drinks very little but considering his weight gain over the last 5 years and family history I am concerned. I have made an appt w/ his regular dr and also an appt with a dr to do a sleep study for apnea. Is the chest pain alone a sign........or is it his anxiety? He takes 10mg lexapro/day for anxiety.

I am anxious to start feeling better soon. I have only had active Grave's for roughly 4 mos or so, but it has really put a damper on my housework and schoolwork.
Avatar f tn The feeling of not getting enough air on breathing can be due to diabetes—both weight gain and shallow breathing can be explained by it. Certain allergies cause this type of breathing and so does asthma but will not explain the weight gain. However they are worth exploring. First check your blood sugar, both after fasting for 8-10 hours and two hours after food. Another possibility is anemia and low protein which along with shallow breaths causes weight gain by water retention.
1426120 tn?1283039272 Certain medications like antidepressants cause weight gain. Polycystic ovary too causes weight gain, hence has to be ruled out by an ultrasound of abdomen. If the above causes are eliminated then you can join a weight trainer and a nutrition expert and follow their advice and lose weight under their guidance. Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

Avatar f tn Hi. Im a 23 yr old male. I've been having weird symptoms lately. I noticed that my skin is not the usual color that it used to be. Its a little bit more lighter or more pale than usual. I not that if i have got or something it bleed, but there seems to be more fluid than blood. Also, a couple of weeks ago i noticed that my stool was a very light, tan-ish color, which is not normal for me. My stool color is returning back to normal but its still a tan-ish every once in awhile.

Avatar f tn I have had two bouts of becoming overwhelmed by a sense of black doom, breaking out in a cold sweat, feeling like I would throw up, and not being able to think, stand, or function. These two episodes have happened over the past two weeks, and each episode lasted about five minutes. When the feeling passed, I felt much better, but my energy was totally drained. Both episodes happened in the morning, on days that I actually felt good about getting out of bed, for a change.

Avatar f tn And doctors do not believe anything I say about what has been going on with my body, my symptoms, and my weight. With the weight gain from graves' and graves' eye disease..I don't want to be seen or go out and run into people.
Avatar f tn I cannot for the life of me gain weight. Its been 6 months now and I've only gained 7 lbs. I'm still below my BMI. I eat over 2 lbs of meat a day along with vegetables. My diet is very limited because I get flares eating certain things. The thing that does the most damage is animal fat. If I eat anything greasy I start to get nauseous, etc. I've tried drinking protein drinks which usually never satisfy me or I get sick from them.
Avatar m tn t have insatiable hunger, fast weight loss or even fast weight gain. I have had recurrent bouts of episcleritis, some fine hand tremors and sometimes, some heart palps. I am concerned about having my thyroid removed because what if there is a different underlying problem which is causing this. I don't have my levels yet, I will get the lab work in a week as well as meet with my endo then. I'm just wondering what other things should I look into so that I am well prepared for this journey.
Avatar n tn Yes, that is the correct test results. (TSH - 0.004; Thyroxine (T4) - 10.8; T3 Uptake - 28; Free Thyroxine ndex - 3.0) I will ask him about doing a FT-4 test. I thought most people that were hyper would see weight loss instead of weight gain??
Avatar n tn If you are working out right and eating right then conditions like hypothyroidism can lead to weight gain. Edema due to kidney disease, liver disease or heart disease can lead to weight gain. Medications like OCpills, antidepressants, pain killers, steroids all can lead to weight gain. Lack of sleep will make you gain weight. Lack of sleep makes you physiologically stressed resulting in fat storage.
Avatar n tn and once I have completed the antibiotics is there a chance of losing the weight? or at least stopping the weight gain. Aside from the vanity point of losing the weight I am sure it makes the arthritis and numbness worse to be carrying around 40 - 50 extra pounds. I simply don't know how to fix this problem, as crazy as that sounds.
Avatar f tn Hyper patients frequently find that their dose is too high and their Free T3 and Free T4 levels drop too low in the range, thus causing hypo symptoms, that can include weight gain. If you will please post your thyroid test results, along with reference ranges we can better assess your status.
