I was first diagnosed with hyperthyroidism in 2010 aged 16. I had a few periods of being down in the dumps but nothing major while taking carbimazole. I was euthyroid after taking the carbimazole for 18 months in 2011.
In January of this year aged 20 my hyperthyroidism came back 10x worse. About a month after being diagnosed I started becoming very irritable and emotional and put it down to the imbalance of hormones due to my thyroid. However over the past 4 months I've got progressively worse while my thyroid levels are now completely normal. My GP prescribed me the anti depressant sertraline a few days ago because I'd had enough of waiting for an nhs talking therapy session and enough of feeling depressed all the time.
