After feeling not at myself for a while, having a racing heart etc and losing 1.5stone in less than a month, I went to the doctors and had all bloods done and an ECG, turns out my results came back that I have an overactive thyroid, I was given propranolol and carbimazole, I need to take 80mg of propranolol a day, and 20mg of carbimazole.
I have been referred to an endocrinologist and will maybe have a few months to wait,
I was also told that my levels of folic acid are very low so I had to get supplements for that, and also that my liver function is out of range, however they said that can happen quite often due to blood sample etc..
I just want any insight on what to expect, I have no idea why this has happened and also wanting to know the chances of Graves' disease? And what will that mean?
I feel worst in the morning with regards I be very jittery and figitty, but in the evening I feel fine almost as though there's absolutely nothing wrong..
I'm putting that down to the tablets maybe??
Any advice or chat would be so appreciated I was in complete shock when I got these results back and hate the thought of not knowing anything more for a few months..
Will I have this for ever??
