Hi I am from the Philippines and am glad I came across this forum to help me better understand what am dealing with right now. I've been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism in March and been taking up tapdin which is a local brand of methimazole here and inderal. Initial dosage was 40mg of methimazole and 40 mg inderal then after 2 weeks my endo cut it to 30 mg plus 20 mg inderal daily now. I feel awesome after two weeks of taking the meds, stopped my palpitations, excessive sweating, weight loss, etc, anxiety and panic attacks. But taking the meds for two months now, I've been battling with painful muscle cramps in my legs and arms and hips and everywhere my body which suddenly attacks me with little things that I do. it is awful. I have been an active person doing lots of activities and I feel depressed i cannot do what I used to without feeling pained. I cannot play the keyboard or play the tambourine without feeling numb and pain after. last time I had a sore throat which is gone now and I believe I had a cold, been coughing a lot. It is been a terrible weather here in the Philippines now. I've been feeling that my voice been hoarse and like sort of a bedroom voice and I would cough it out and sometimes it goes away. I am really worried. I gained weight too and been feeling cold lately, it could be that I turned hypo? Is it possible? by the way my endo just tested tsh without testing my t3 and t4 and I guess she just based my meds out of my tsh results. I am not feeling normal, i feel anxious most of the time especially that I cannot reach my endo coz she is out of the country for a month now. And any comments about my muscles cramps and muscles pains? it is just so terrifying and I do not want to live this way. I do not know if it will just subside soon or it will lingers on for till I dont know when. My period is also acting up. Sorry about this long message I have no one to turn to. Thanks
