    It takes awhile to feel right and get the medication correct. Water weight is temporary. I thought it was great that I didn’t sweat but not for long. Good luck!

    I’m just like you! Recently diagnosed and still feel like crud! Brain fog. Fatigue. Weight gain. I have been on meds 2 months now with 1 dosage increase. I get it. Ugh. I hope the meds can give us all some relief soon. I had to go keto because carbs and sugar make me feel Worse!
