Just to give some background about me, for the past 12-18 months I have become a fitness addict, since the start of the year I workout 6 days a week and eat super clean and have become very lean and am very happy with the results.
I was aware that i had lost weight but put this down to my training schedule but thought it would be wise to have some advice from my GP to see if I was over exercising.
I had various bloods and the results show:
After calls to my doctors and being told that my results were not back I am in the fortunate position that I am a manager within the NHS so I had a contact at the hospital and got the results emailed to me, I spoke to a GP where I work and she said the results show I am hyperthyroid and would probably be started on carbimazole and referred to endo.
My appt to discuss my results is on Wednesday and I am freaking out, I have a long history of anxiety & deprssion and the gym/working out is what keeps me sane. I am scared I will have to stop or once treatment starts I will put on lots of weight.
My current issue is I am due to fly to America in 1 week for a 10 day holiday......I am scared I will be told I am not medically fit to travel due to this diagnosis.
I have no symptoms to be honest, I feel fine, at times I feel drained but have put this down to waking up at 6am each day to hit the gym before work.
Does anyone else have any experience of this and could advise about my upcoming holiday and exercise? Should I call on Monday and insist on an urgent appt?
