Hi me again, sorry to keep going on but getting really fed up now!
I have been on 10mg of Carbimazole and 45mg of propranalol for 6 weeks now since before Xmas. I know people have said on this site be patient it takes a good while to feel better, but if i could just explain how i live at the moment, I wondered if it was typical of having an overactive thyroid!
I tried to just use propranalol when my pulse racing, however as soon as i stopped for just one day racing pulse was back! I can put up with aches and pains, but i'm not living at all !!!!
Mornings are worse takes so long to come round! If i do manage to stay up and try and have a normal day, i find by by the end of the day i am speeding find it hard to slow down, i then get into bed dead tired but my head won't switch off and I can't sleep! So I can't get up in the morning and then i sleep for about 24 hours and then try it all over again! My husband and daughter are getting very frustrated with me, so i feel guilty about staying in bed! I'm sure they and the rest of my family think I'm not fighting this and i am weak!
I don't want to be like this ( i am not depressed as i do suffer with this) so again family think it might be depressed! There is no point in me going back to doctor as he has told me it does take a long time to feel better! I am having bloods done again Thursday so will see him Friday! Sometimes i feel it' s all in my head! The other thing I haven't mentioned i am b12 defienct and have injections for this, plus i am on antidepressants so they probably don't help with tiredness!
Any feedback i'd be very grateful!
