Hi everyone, after a very strange year of feeling unwell and having blood tests i have finally been diagnosed with overactive thyroid! Friday doctor started me on 10mg of Carbimazole i also take 40mg of propranalol as my pulse was over a hundred! I have just felt so ill it seems for so long, when they finally discovered i had an overactive thyroid in October they wanted to wait and do another bloodtest a month later, then my bloods apparently had gone back to normal! So i wasn't treated and got on with my life, i think i felt ok, anyway a few weeks ago started to feel rough again had another bloodtest and i had gone overactive again! I keep forgetting to ask for levels but will get a printout next time!
So now i am being treated, it seems a very low level but I'm thinking maybe they start you low? Doctor did talk to me about the radio active treatment but i explained not keen on that ( after reading people's stories on here) and would rather start with the Carbimazole apparantly you take it for 18 months then you stop and they see how things are?
I just wondered what people's experience of this drug were, be grateful for any feedback?
In advance thank you!
