I was told I had a slightly over active thyroid about a year ago, went to the hospital and was told it wasn't too high so should sort itself out. Cutting a long story short I went back to the gp as the tremor in my hands was getting worse. He repeated the blood tests and my results were tsh 0.01 t4 61 and t3 19. I am taking propranolol and carbizole bit still am getting worse. I have had to give up my job due to the tremor in my hands is uncontrollable and on bad days I am barely able to feed myself (soup is permanently of the menu). I have itchy skin and my hair is falling out. I get so hot somedays I sweat all the time, and I am now getting really breathless even just talking on the phone so trying to find a new job is awful as I itch, shake, and can't breathe through even the shortest of interviews! I am now finding myself feeling close to tears most days as I feel like a freak due to my symptoms. I am 32 and am avoiding any social interaction as people look at my tremor and think I'm weird. It really is ruining every aspect of my life and is starting to affect my family. I have an appointment with the hospital next Thursday and am hoping they can do something. I'm skint due to not being able to work, depressed,fed up, and feel really alone. Help?
