I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and graves disease around 4 years ago and have been taking 20mg Carbimazole and 40mg Propranalol since then. Went to see an endo around a year ago who advised either surgery or RAI therapy. He took blood tests from me but i never recieved another appointment. After moving locations i have recently been feeling not quite right (fatigue, dry skin, depression, stomach problems, foggy head and terrible sensitivity to cold) and went to visit my GP. More blood tess then he advised me that I have now swung round to being hypothyroid.
He has reffered me to an endo again but I was told it could take several weeks to get an appointment. I asked the GP if there was anything I could do in the meantime to make myself feel better. I am only 27 and work in hospitality, a job that requires long hours on my feet, irregular eating and sleeping patterns etc. I was told there was nothing I could do but wait for the endo appointment to come through. It comes and goes but some days I can barely drag myself out of bed to go to work or go out and do anything on my days off. I am also very down, frequently in tears and just feel very weak, frustrated and sorry for myself!
Any help with anything I could do/take in the meantime would be much appreciated
