I have just been to see an endo and he has said that I have Graves' disease.
My levels were very high at my last blood tests but have been put on 40mg of Carbimazole and now they have dropped significantly.
I am still having all the symptoms of hyper. Anxiety, brain fog, sweating, thirst, place stool, lack of motivation, fatigue, aching arms and legs etc...
He is going to do a block and replace technique and then put me on thyroxine once I see him in 4 weeks time.
My endo said that until my stored thyroxine levels in my body have been used up I will still suffer with hyper symptoms. Has anyone experiment this before?
My TSH is still 0, what is people's thoughts on this?. I'm guessing it's due to the putruity gland not giving any signal to the thyroid yet as I still have too much thyroxine in me?
The final part I need to ask is that I feel I have suffered with graves for many years but not knows it. This is due to me always swEating a lot, contestant thirst and anxiety to name a few. I was diagnosed with anxiety 6 years ago and went to Councelling and done CBT, scheme therepy and went on 40mg on citalopram and practise mindfullness meditation everyday but Nothing's touched my anxiety.
He said I might have generalised anxiety disorder to which I disagreed as I feel with the amount of work I have done with anxiety and the fact that I'm constantly stuck in fight or flight all day every day and that the anxiety has subsided for the first time in 2 years over the past 4 weeks (only twice) proves that it's the thyroid.
He said you can't have thyroid problems that go on for years that go unnoticed. Has anyone ever has this? There is feeling of dread on my stomach all the time and my thoughts are constantly saying to me that I'm in danger even when I'm lying in bed.
