I desperately need some advice because I'm really worried.
I'll just go through what has been going on with me over the past few months and what is going on now.
Around late February early March I suddenly woke up with extremely puffy eyelids and put this down to a reaction to my contact lens lotion. I decided not to wear my leses for a couple of weeks but my eyelids remained puffy. Then from about April I started to feel not quite right but couldn't put my finger on what was wrong with me. I was starting to feel more tired, breathless, weak, shakey and very anxious and panicky. I went to my GP just over 2 weeks ago and she done some bloods. My GP called me on Monday telling me I have an overactive thyroid and I started to take carbimazol 5mg/twice daily. Well, since then I feel like I have got worse I am very, very weak, extremely breathless and just feel so ill. My pulse will go no lower than 84bpm and sometimes shoots up to 120-136bpm which really freaks me out. My mum has had to move in with me as I am totally incapacitated.
Is this normal to feel like this? I'm so worried. When will the tablets start to work?
I've got an appointment in just over a week to seen an endocrinologist
