Just over a year ago I was diagnosed with Graves' disease
I was suffering many symptoms and felt very ill indeed
I was put on Carbimazole, Starting at a dose of 20mg /day...
I quickly felt better and many of my awful symptoms reduced drastically .
Slowly my dosage was reduced and at
10mg I felt very good and in no pain !
When I reduced to 5mg endocrinologist decided I was Euthroid ... normal And
Drug was stopped .
A few months later now and I have the awful pain in my joints again and my muscles are Sore and feel useless ,
Getting up from a chair , or getting out of my car is so painful and I must stop for a minute to get my legs to respond .
I feel like I have no muscle to support my joints ... 🙀
I take supplements to support and strengthen my immune system which is attacking my thyroid ! .. namely
Acidophilus as 80% of immune system is in our gut
I took L Carnitine to wean off Carbimazole
And I'm sure it helped ... but no longer do
As I was supposed to be Euthroid and didn't want to become Hypothyroid ..,
Can one of you ... more learned and knowledgeable .. friends please help me
As I am in awful pain and feel tired ...
Linda are you there ... ?
