Hi I`m confused with my Graves and could do with some help please. I`ve been given an endo nurse who sends me a blood form, I get the blood taken and then the nurse phones me to say what amount of carbimazole to take. This happened and she told me my levels were spot on- right in the middle where we want them! I was pleased but said that I`ve not been feeling good with aching joints, sweating and very tired and dizzy. The nurse doesn`t think its the thyroid because of my good levels. I then go to see my GP who gives me a checkover and he doesn`t seem to be able to diagnose anything.
My TSH is 1.72 (0.35-3.5)
thyroxin 13 (8-21)
I`m 11 weeks in with taking carbimazole and although I feel better than when I was first diagnosed - I`m certainly not back to normal yet. The endo nurse seems to believe I should be ok now. Does it take a while to get back to normal? Many thanks x
