Hiya guys just looking for some advice as since diagnosis a couple of months ago it seems to be one thing after another! Im on carbimazole (2 tablets a day can't remember the mg) and vitamin D supplements (don't know if it's related but just thought I'll shove it in in case). I'm on waiting list to see the specialist as I'm only 20 years old and I have a lump in the side of my neck which is likely to be a nodule and I have an obvious goitre as my neck is quite swollen. I had a chest infection a couple of weeks ago where I completely lost my voice and had a fever etc. Was on antibiotics and had to come off carbimazole while they did a blood test but blood count came back fine and so I'm back on them. I'm having monthly blood tests and my last one showed my levels were coming down so was happy to have some good news at last! But then tonight I started earlier with moderate pain in that area (not sure how to be polite about this lol) and progressively worsened at work to the point where I thought I was gonna burst out crying! Then came home and went to the toilet and was in so much pain when urinating. It's not a stinging but more like a full on pain then happens toward the end of weeing. I've taken paracetamol but still in pain and now feel like I need to wee all the time. I've been 3 times in the past hour and that is so unlike me as I barely ever wee lol (I know I should probably drink more water!) I assumed it was a UTI but have never had one before so am really worried! Obviously it's the weekend now so can't go to the doctors until Monday. I probably would just leave it longer as I'm sick of that place now, literally been like 5 times in the past couple of weeks! But now I've noticed that there is blood in my urine, it started off as pink when I wiped but is getting darker everytime I go and now I'm unsure. I have no idea if this is related to hyperthyroidism or not, I'm still so new to all of this! I'm just not sure really what to do, whether to leave it and cross my fingers or if it is a cause for concern! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
Ps - should also add that I noticed over the past week that my urine has been smelling, I put it down to being on so many tablets and then being on antibiotics but now am wondering if that is also related!
Mind is running crazy as usual so really would appreciate any help!!
