Can a bad slip and fall on a neck cause a thyroid problem because I have rapidly gained weight without diet or exercise change?

Can a bad slip and fall on a neck cause a thyroid problem because I have rapidly gained weight without diet or exercise change?

No, but...: The physical trauma from a slip and fall cannot cause hypothyroidism. However, the stress/emotional trauma that you may deal with afterwards could trigger many causes of weight gain, which could include hormonal imbalances or even thyroid imbalance. The best way to know for sure is to see a doctor so he/she can discuss this with you further and order the appropriate tests. Best wishes. ...Read more

I m 32 years old... Vegetarian....I exercise a lot...I eat very less.....Not suffering from thyroid....But still I m gaining a lot of weight. ..

Change it up...: If you're eating a diet that is high in carbs, even good carbs, not getting enough calories, or are doing a lot of cardiovascular exercise, and not enough strength training, this could be the problem. Mix it up. Bump up the protein and healthy fats, and add some resistance training to turn it around. More here: http://www. Mindbodygreen. Com/0-10114/8-reasons-why-youre-not-losing-weight.

Unusual: Defying physics is remarkable. You have created energy without a source. Most people cannot possibly gain weight without a change in diet or exercise. You need to sit down and think about this, and then formulate a plan so that you expend more calories than you consume. Good luck and have a great weekend. ...Read more

Common sense weight: It is physically impossible to gain weight on 1200 calories a day. You might have added wrong. Are you constipated? Think about it...you can only gain as much weight as the physical weight of what you take in minus what you excrete. Exercise plus daily caloric requirements should burn up 1200 calories. ...Read more

5 days ago I had neck surgery. Fusion of the c4, C5 & c6. Since leaving the hospital I've had a significant weight gain, 10 lbs. I also feel and appear very bloated, almost pregnant. Is this normal and when will I loose this?

5 days ago I had neck surgery. Fusion of the c4, C5 & c6. Since leaving the hospital I've had a significant weight gain, 10 lbs. I also feel and appear very bloated, almost pregnant. Is this normal and when will I loose this?

Not normal: I would say it is definitely not normal. You may need to be checked. Some patients who have surgery get a lot of IV fluids and this can cause swelling and weight gain after surgery that the patient gradually urinates out after surgery. But an acdf is a relatively minor surgery, so it would be unusual to have gotten a lot of fluid. You should get a medical check up. Thank you for your question. ...Read more
