I’m Frustrated.

I'm Frustrated. 1

My doctor can’t tell me where all this weight gain is from. There’s other issues going along with it but that’s a whole other bucket of worms. I’m mad.

I went once again to the doctor and he flat out told me, “I don’t know”.

Yes, I cried. “Are you okay?”


He drew more lab work this morning. He said he’d call me. I responded with “Are you actually gonna call because any other time I HAVE to call and then wait for a call back.” He said he’ll call me this afternoon.

I’m still waiting. I’m mad. I’m furious.

And yet, I’m stuck here with no answers besides that something isn’t right.

  1. I know this is an old post, I found it through the main page (I’m new here!), and I’m interested to see if you ever found out – I’ve gained ten pounds in two months and I can’t seem to get it off, and I am frustrated as hell. It’s a mystery, because I am not doing anything differently, and the harder I try to get it off the more frustrated I get. Doctor is the next step, but I’ve avoided it because I feel like I will fwwl like you felt – frustrated and no answers. Gah.

  2. I’m new here. Living with fibro has so many major challenges, I have one question, do you take Lyrica for your fibro?? Lyrica has weight gain as a side effect, I put on 80 lbs in the first year I was on Lyrica, After the first year the weight gain stopped but I also haven’t been able to lose it. I get the same answer from my doctor when I ask how to lose it – I don’t know. It’s very frustrating!!

  3. I don’t “think” I have fibro, but I have lots of other issues (chronic pain, sciatica, osteoarthritis, hypothyroidism, gastritis…etc.). No matter what I eat or don’t eat, I cannot lose weight. It’s SO frustrating. And, of course, my doctor always says that I should cut back on fats and carbs and try to get some exercise.

    No matter what I say, that’s the reply. So frustrating. Even when I eat like 1200-1500 calories a day because I have no appetite (that went on for weeks), I didn’t lose a POUND. NOTHING. Ugh. And no one has any answers and no one cares, really.
