Hi just looking for some advice.
I am 27 year old female and was diagnosed with overactive thyroid over 18 months ago now. Initially they thought it was nothing as my TSH levels have always been a normal level with my T4 being slightly over however, I suffered all side effects over active thyroid anxiety, nervousness, sweating weight loss!
After extensive testing over the months a small tumour was found in my pitruity gland which they initially thought was secreting TSH however, it wasn't and now they believe it was just an incidental finding. After more and more and more testing they now believe I have Thyroid resistance/Graves disease (still unsure)!
Anyway I need help as 4 weeks ago the consultant stopped my Carbimazole at 10mg (started on 20mg, then 15mg, then 10mg) as my thyroid levels have been normal for a good few months now! However, I feel absolutely TERRIBLE!! Anxiety through the roof, depression, mood swings, crying, restlessness, unable to sleep, bowel changes and weird head sensations (kind of like a zapping feeling?) Is this normal??? What should I do I feel awful! Any advice would be greatly appreciated....many thanks xx
