I've been reading through the posts and my sympathy to all of you who struggle with our horrid condition. Been on Carbimazole for 2 years now and my levels are usually fluctuation towards the high end. Due to my high sensitivity to meds, once I up my meds to 15mg a day - within a week I notice hypo symptoms.Is anyone like me though?
I have the worst periods - tenderness from day 21, spotting and period feeling for 5 days before period comes, heavy, clotting and painful?
Also, I am 4- or so kg's heavier than I ever have been. I'm only 5"3 and I'm petite so every kg shows - when I've not been pregnant I've always been my normal weight and now if I eat carbs and don't excercise I immediately put on weight and I can't seem to shake off those 4 kg's no matter how I try! My psoarisis has also flared up again.
My endo told me that some nodules even when a FNA result show's clear have been biopsied after surgery and found to have traces of cancer and has advised me to get my thyroid removed. I'm really really nervous though on being on thyroxin all my life. Please tell me that you've BTDT and you're ok? What was it like for you? Please give me some advice!
Thanks in advance!
