Been struggling with potential thyroid symptoms for a number of years now. Every year they seem to be getting worse, especially the heat intolerance. I went from sweating on armpits and feet, then as the years have passed pretty much everywhere on my body in the heat (Generalized Hyperhidrosis).
Recently had my thyroid tested for the 3rd time (results below) my TSH is slowing dropping to the lower end of the normal range. I've also recently had my adrenal glands tested everything came back as negative/normal.
My doctor wants to trial me on a small dose of methimazole, 5MG. Im at my wits end. A part of me is glad that he wants to trial based upon my symptoms and not just the numbers but I also worry about the long term effects of taking this drug if I dont have hyperthyroid...?
