Just diagnosed and worried

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi there

I'm new here. I just got back from the gp and have been told o have a very over active thyroid. I had a baby 9 months ago and have not felt well since I developed diabetes but I also started feeling very dizzy and have lost an extreme amount of weight and many other symptoms along with anxiety etc.

Whilst it is good to understand what is wrong it has scared me a lot . I have been given Carbimazole to take three times a day.

Can any one give any advice on how I can help myself and any reassuring info. I'm just worried due to just having a baby and trying to cope. I hate taking meds but will do it if I have to. I am also being referred to a specialist.

Thank you

    Your specialist will get you sorted out. In the meantime, take your meds because they will help you. I'm told anxiety is a very common symptom and I also have it. You could try some meditation, exercise, etc. You will be okay, the meds should keep your levels where they need to be. Keep talking on this forum, it's a great support system from people who understand exactly where you're coming from. We are all here for each other because we are all going through the same thing. Take care

      Thank you for your supportive reply. I guess it was just a shock I'm normally and physically healthy person and I know it's quite common the symptoms do wear you out even just feeling hot all the time .
