    Hi

    Elaine is right its both the carbimazole and the thyroid. I have spent two and a half years bouncing around so I am off to Endo tomorrow to disscuss when I can have the radioiodine. I just want a settled life back and the old me back.

    Its nice being slim but I rather have a calm brain and body.

    Take care.
