I have been diagnosed with hyperthyroide about 2 months ago and 3 weeks ago I started carbimazole (60 mg/day)
Since a week I am fighting with an extremely aggresive alergy. I have been at hospital in the emergency department 2 times last week. They did all the necessary tests and got to the conclusion that despite this horrible allergy, I should not stop taking my treatment. They also gave me some anti-allergy drugs which so far are acting very slow. My allergy is almost all over my body, especially on hands, shoulders, neck and face. It is not only itchy but more like my skin would burn. It also migrates from one place to another and gives me nausea, very strong headache and fever at about 36.5 - 37.
Honestly since a week I am living in a hell, I am trying to work but my work request a lot of concentration and how could I concentrate when my skin is burning?!
I tried to reach the doctor that prescribed the medicine (endocrinologist) but I could not find her and my appointment with her is only in 3 weeks, how could I live with this for 3 weeks? (
My other concerc is that I was always very skiny but since I started taking carbimozale, I ganed about 5 kg. I am really horified that if I will continuie to gane wheight like this I will become fat.
What could I do? Is there any other treatment for hiperthyroide but less harmfull? Would it be better if I would just remove the thyroide (with surgery) and then to just keep its function with medication? Would I still be in danger of gaining wheight?
Last but not least, is it true that this medication (carbimazole) is still an experimental drug?
I am looking forward for any answers, opinions, ideas and experiences in the fight with the thyroid.
