So, its been several weeks from my diagnosis of hyper-thyroidism - to say this has taken over my life has been an understatement. Like so many of you I had lost tons of weight, had head aches, pins and needles in head, fainting, out of mind experiences and feeling like I wasnt "normal". My levels at the start were ST4 >100 and TSH switched off, I was put on carbimizole 40mg and proponol 80mg which stared to work quite quickly. My second bunch of results were (after 6 weeks) ST4 84.1 and TSH switched off. My third results again after 6 weeks were ST4 4.7 and TSH normal( 0.34), I had flipped to under active. As a result of these last results my endo took me off the beta blocker and introduced levothyroxine along with 40 carbimizole to "block and replace". The last 6 weeks have been tough. Im putting on weight quickly, am sore and taking muscle cramps constantly which are extremely painful. Its like a never ending road to get things stable. Thank goodness for this forum and support youve all given. Has anyone else fliped from over to under? and had meds blocked and relaced like this? Also, are these muscle cramps normal? Thanks xxx
