Hello, I'm hoping for some advice. I've been driving my doctor and consultant (even before my 1st appt) to distraction by being extremely reluctant to take anti thyroid meds - betablockers fine, I'm already hypertensive so on water tablets too. my results are T4 100+ which seems to be worrying my consultant who is sending etters and asking my surgery to increase the dose from 15mg to 40mg carbimazole! That feels like a massive hike.
I just don't want to be thrown in to hypo becuase it's easier for the doctors. I'm awaiting my 2nd blood test in a couple of weeks and if my hormones are falling I really want to be able to state my case for aiming for Euthyroid nice and slow, not hypo immediately. I mean really, is a thyroid storm that common or imminent...?
Has anyone had a good experience/relaionship with their medical team? Are they panicking for no reason or am I not taking this seriously enough?
