hi guys i am new to this forum but heres a lil background history of how i am affected by hyperthyroidism.
i was dagnosed with subclinical hyperthyroidism a couple of years ago. my TSH has aways been low 0.03 but with normal ranges for T3 and T4. my endo wanted to just monitor me repeat bloods every couple of months etc. i started to feel really bad so endo decided to put me on carbimazole 5mg. after 2 weeks of taking it i was having really bad side effects; excrucuating joint pain where i could barely walk so i had no choice but to stop i actually felt better off the meds! now i am at the point where my TSH is still hardly detectable and my T4 has risen slighly above normal range and i feel awful chronic fatigue, terrible brain fog, heart palpitations, joint pain to name a few. started taking some supplements about 2 weeks ago i notice i have good days and bad days. GP prescribed me popranalol but im too scared to take it plus dont actually think its necessary at this point in time. he also discussed putting me on PTU instead of carbimazole also have doubts about that too. has anyone had any bad experiences taking PTU? or have any good remedies or supplements i can take that will help???
