I can really relate. I gained 20 pounds myself, I used to weigh 100 lbs.
The hunger stayed the same for me on the PTU, but the PTU is the first step to getting better. Then usually you have to take the atomic cocktail.
Talk about mood swings, I found they get better as your levels lower. If you asked anyone in my family, I was a psycho. I still get moody though, though it’s easier to control.
I’ve had the atomic cocktail twice, been sick for about two years, hopefully on the road to recovery.
Did they put you on any beta blockers? They help with the mood swings.
If you would like to write me, personally, feel free. I feel like I’ve been through a lot.
Take care and good luck!
