Hi, I'm a 16 year old girl and I've just been diagnosed with Graves' disease (2 weeks ago) and so I have an over active thyroid. I've been feeling so ill for ages with fatigue, headaches, sweating and not being able to control my body temperature, anxiety and panic attacks and getting little to no sleep at all. I'm now taking 30mg of carbimizole and beta blockers and have been referred to the endocrinologist. I've just started sixth form and I have already had to miss half a term because of my Graves' disease and it's just really starting to get me down a lot and from what I've been reading, it seems like it takes quite a while to get rid of Graves' disease so I was just wondering if anyone had any idea how long it'll take for my Graves' disease to go away, thank you!!
