long history but this. went to reknowned facility for broken hip at age 59; in mth rapid weight loss of 28 pounds. ortho at this facility referred me to endo. endo found hypercalcemia. admitted to hospital. found Graves disease-early Dec 2017. return to PCP, won't treat me because of being admitted to Mayo. so endo now 4 hrs away. was hyperthyroid with Graves. Prescribed Tapazole (Methimazole) 40, could only take 30 due to vomiting. Propanolol 40, made BP and pulse too low. now on Tapazole 20 and Propanolol 20 for past mth. OB/GYN ran blood work: TSH, T3, T4 all well below normal. tired. irritable. crying often OB says now hypothyroid and being overtreated. waiting for endo. response who is angry OB ran tests. no one has said anything about Carnitine, which I will check out. what do these test results mean T3 and T4 were normal 4 weeks ago after 6 weeks on tapazole. still unsure whether to have surgery or RAI. Endo wanted thyroid stable first. Thank you for your time.
