I have recently been diagnosed with mild Hyperthyroidism by a specialist but he hasn’t yet ruled out Graves Disease or something else (this is all very new to me so I’m trying to get my head around it)
I seem to only have a few of the symptoms mentioned by others and they do seem to be mild, but I’m worried will they get worse and impact my lifestyle? I’m reasonably fit and healthy and play competitive football, I had noticed this last year that I’m tired a lot easier than previous years but had put that down to getting older (38 yrs)....I have always had trouble getting to sleep and am a very light sleeper, often feel a little lethargic but kind of Sparatic.
I originally went to the Dr for headaches I was getting and after a number of blood tests I was told I had Glandular Fever....again must have been mild as i wasn’t bed ridden or anything. My liver tests and T4, T3 and TSH were all abnormal but since liver has dropped so think the GD just put that out of whack. The Thyroid tests are still high after 3 lots of bloods.
Dr has started me on 5mg of Carbizmole to see if this helps and then another test before consultation. I have noticed some increases heart rate at times and also feeling a little sick which I believe is side effect of the drugs - does this go after a period of time when used to them?
So really I’m wondering if anyone else has similar MILD symptoms as everything I read seems to be more severe than what I’m feeling at the moment?
Thanks heaps and any info is appreciated.
