Hi all, I first posted on here 3/4 weeks ago after blood tests showed I had an overactive thyroid.The doctor think it`s Graves as I have some eye problems too. These forums have been a great source of information and helped me get through those 1st weeks.
However I`m a bit concerned because for the past 3 days I`ve been lightheaded. This comes in spells, so maybe a better description is `dizzy spells.` I saw the duty GP yesterday who told me to stop the beta blockers (bisoprolol) and that helped as I wasn`t too bad last evening (after I usually take the bisopropol), but today the dizzyness has come back, but not as bad as its been over the weekend. I`m wondering are dizzy spells another hyperthyroid symptom.
I still haven`t gotten my blood levels from my doctor - all he told me is that I was extremely hyperthyroid- and yesterdays GP told me that my levels are getting better. At one point the GP looked my symptoms up in a handbook - so as you can see this doesn`t give me much confidence with my local doctors. I`m due to see the endo team in 2 weeks time and hoping to get more answers then. Thanks in advance x
