Went to the doctors end of January due to mood swings, irritability, weightloss and tiredness.
Had blood tests which revealed hyperthyroidism was started on carbimazole 5mg two in the morning and propranolol 80mg slow release.
To control the racing heartbeat, tremors and anxiety
Had first appointment at the hospital this week
Told that thyroid has come down with no swelling present, I asked about Graves' disease as it scares me and all I got was I suspect it is which wasn't very reassuring, I still don't understand if I'm stuck with it for life and why I have got this
The Dr from the hospital just advised try taking two propranolol 80mg one in evening but don't know if I'm getting strange side effects or just me getting used to the higher dose
I have had minor eye discomfort mainly dry and gritty from lack of sleep only getting 4-5 hours
Was also told medication for a year then will be taken off and have 50% chance it will stay normal and not return Any advice or help to understand
