    I was diagnosed two years ago with hyperthroidism and Graves Disease. I had all of the symptoms above as well as palpitations, sweats and high levels of anxiety resulting in sleepless nights. I also have two large multicystic nodules on my thyroid that continue to grow - the largest being 8cm diameter.

    I have had many combinations of medication, including a programme of Block and Replace for 18 months. I became hypothyroid 2 months ago so am on another regime of medication - 10mcg of Carbimazole a day. Things are stable for now but I know they can fluctuate again at any time. I was due to have my thyroid removed this summer but this has now been pushed back to some time on 2021.

    My best advice is to listen to your body - go back to your doctor if you feel things are changing or you don't feel 'right' and insist on regular blood tests. I made some changes with diet but the best change was to go caffeine free - it really helped to reduce the dizziness and tremors.

    My tremors were mainly in my handand arms but if I had caffeine then my whole body would experience tremors too and I was generally shaky. This has improved with removing caffeine and being on the right dose of medication. I had lots of changes to my medication until things settled. It is very much trial and error.
