I have just joined this forum (and one other) looking for some positive vibes, and help to answer some of my questions.
I'm feeling so very depressed with my recent diagnosis of graves disease. I was doing OK, my levels were a little out of the normal range and had been for a year. I wasn't experiencing any graves symptoms other than the hot flushes here n there. I have however now started carbimazole 10mg daily...and now omg I'm totally regretting mentioning flushes to my doctor. I'm in so much pain, started off in my arms...muscle region but now my neck and shoulder joints are on fire...I could barely drive home tonight. Is this normal? I was meant to be at metafit tonight but have had to cancel....the pain regions seem to change too. Yesterday the pain was in my shoulder blade, left side today it's my right.
I also would like to ask re weight gain on carbimazole. Will continuing my exercise regime and maintaining a healthy diet stop any weight gain? I'm stressing about this bit of the journey.
My first endo appointment was doc giving me my diagnosis, asking about my symproms and gave me my prescription. No information was given other than call gp in instances of sore throat etc.
I'm so sorry this is very VERY long, I just don't know where to turn. My husband has fallen out with me cause "I'm constantly moaning about sore bits" and no one I know has ever heard of this.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.

P.s - reading through this I do realise that I'm very fortunate to only have graves disease as I appreciate my health condition could be far worse.
