Hashimoto's ?: Is this primary or secondary hypothyroidism? Do you have hashimoto's thyroiditis? Your weight gain not likely the result of thyroid hormone status and if you raise your dose you may suffer the consequences of hyperthyroidism. I suggest you look elsewhere for cause of fatigue and wt gain. Sleep apnea?
