Hello, new here been reading other post and finding them very interesting and helpful.
I went to doctors with a sore foot and also complained about generally a vague not feeling great. Blood test done and turns out I have an overactive thyroid because I'm over weight (5foot3, size 16/18) GP convinced I'm diabetic, test come back negative (twice) so then tested for celiac disease as blood test showed signs of inflammation, also negative. GP says don't know what's wrong as blood test not standard for just hyperthyroidism so must have another issue, I'm also have anaemic and I'm B12 deficient (not sure if that's normal with the thyroid). Waiting for referral for endocrinologist but started on 20mg carbimazole. At first GP was going to also start beta blockers but has asked me to come back in 2 weeks to see if he want to start them.
So confused, have asked for copy of blood test as my memory and concentration are shot can't remember everything GP said. Worried about putting on weight on carbimazole, how long it will take for referral and just how long it will be before I feel normally again trying to study for my masters and just can't concentrate or retain info at the moment.
i suppose I'm just looking for a little reassurance and to know that I'm not the only one worrying about these things.
thanks for reading, Kerry
