Hi, I was diagnosed with Graves 2 months ago and was put on 40mg carbimazole. I had an appointment with the endo 3 weeks ago and she dropped the dosage to 20 mg as I`d reached the normal range. I had been feeling much more my old self but I felt I was beginning to feel poorly again, the endo said that I`d been very ill and my body was bound to take some time to get completely right again. However my feeling poorly has got worse and worse until today I really don`t know how to cope with this anymore. I spoke to my GP last week and he sent me for a blood test that came back to show I `d gone underactive. He said to carry on with the 20 mg of carbimazole and go for another blood test this week - as he wants to see if my levels are righting themselves. All during this I`m feeling more and more ill and getting more depressed and wonder if any of you have any suggestions as to what to do? The endo doctor said her intention was to get me off the carbimazole and she`d see me in 3 months time but there`s no way I can wait that long feeling like this. My latest blood results should be back tomorrow and hopefully my GP will drop the dose of carbimazole but I don`t think he `s keen to go against the endocrinologist`s suggestion of waiting 3 months. I`m tempted to phone the endo`s secretary and ask advice but no sure if that`s ok to do that? Any advise would be so appreciated- thanks
