I have been diagnosed with an overactive thyroid, for which I am now taking Carbimozole (20mg a day) and Propranolol (40mg twice a day). I have asked my doctor if I may reduce my Propranolol intake as, although it seems to have reduced palpitations (due to the thyroid, not stress), it has also made me 'check out' of life somewhat. I am just not there! My partner says he wants the old me back (he is incredibly supportive) and I would love to return to my bright self. I am signed off work, because when I try to concentrate on more than one thing, my head just buzzes.
Still, at least the hot flushes and the weight loss (rapid) have been curbed. I am due to be monitored for some Radioactive zapping of the thyroid as I dont have Goitre problems.
Anyone else experiencing this and on Carbimozole also, it would be nice to hear other people's experiences.
