    Hi I can relate to yr problems I was diagnosed last year after many visits to my GP being told I was suffering from Anxiety. I felt so ill anxious didnt want to go out missed and irregular heart beats which I may add really scared me. , and every other symptom possible, I have been taking Carbimazole for a year now and have a constant sore throat and still my levels are not right so I still have anxiety, its nice to know im not the only one out there who thinks they are going mad !!! I hope you all start to feel better soon be nice to know how you are getting on. Louise

    Hi, Sorry you are having such a horrible time. I am a novice in this thyroid business, only diagnosed a few weeks ago. I Haven't had any sore throat, thank goodness but yes, the missed beats and irregular heart rate are really scarey, I really don't like this at all. I hope you feel better soon. I have had such help and support from this site so do keep in touch. There are others here who can give you support and advice and when you need a good moan, go ahead !
