I've had Graves etc for at least 5 months.
I am off work right now (on holiday) until Saturday.
Supportive GP is likely to give me sick note if I ask and I am feeling awful - weak, feel sick, tired etc and I have a job that involves heavy lifting and with my weakness, i've been adjusting and now my back hurts and my already painful legs are struggling even more.
Finances are not an issue so I can afford two weeks off, but will it help?
My main concern with taking time off is an employment one and how it will affect that long term, but I need to be as healthy as possible.
I plan to see my GP tomorrow or Wednesday, whenever an appointment is available, and i'm back at the specialist next Thursday.
I take carbimazole and was told in July their was a slight improvement, but not much at all.
I know I need the time off to rest but I guess i'd like some reassurance.
