Hi, I have been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism about 2 months ago. Was first on 15mg of Carbimazole a day for 3 weeks then increased to 20mg a day 3 weeks later and now I'm on 40mg a day and have been on them for just over 4 weeks but im not seeing major improvements.
Yes I can now walk to the toilet with out getting out of breath but that's about it.
My symptoms can change hour by hour. Some times I can be very anxious and have huge fatigue, sweats etc..but sometimes I can have a lower lever of anxiety and a better feeling of energy but still very unwell.
My main questions is, I am getting a lot of head pressure which comes and goes?? Has anyone else experienced this please?
I do get a lot of throat spasms from what I gather is due to the thyroid having an effect on my sympathetic nervous system, which keeps me in fight or flight and then my throat spasms as a symptom.
I'm waiting to see an endo soon but this is driving me crazy. I think I'm getting better but then the next day I could be back where I started 3 weeks ago by feeling so ill and having awful symptoms again.
Any experience would be helpful?
