Hi, I started to get sick since last August. Symptoms were weight loss, stomach ailments, mood swings, irregulaf periods, temperature changes (sometimes feeling very hot and then feeling extremely cold, nervousness, increased appetite and the list goes on. My GP did some test and it turned out i had tested high for H Pylori and i also my tsh levels were very low and he diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. He treated me for both problems. The second round of blood tests show that the h pylori was negative and the thyroid was normal but on the low side after being treated with carbimazole 5 mg daily. These treatments started this year in February right on into July after being stopped and placed back on meds. I stopped taking the caribimazole in July. I never gained back weight i moved from 144 to 105 1bs. I stopped the meds because it was making me very sick. Now, i found out last month that i was pregnant and the blood test confirmed that my tsh levels again were very low- of a range of 0.38-4.31: my tsh is 0.24. Again the other levels are normal. My pregnancy is terrible... i cant keep any thing done and i am freezing all the time. The doctor placed me on Propylthiouracil 50 mg and three days after taking it i developed a nasty flu and i am so weak and pale. Can someone please help me? Do u think my body is rejecting these meds because of a different problem other than hyperthyroidism?
