side effects

Posted , 4 users are following.

I have been on this drug for hyperthyroidism since the end of September. I have just had a fine needle aspiration for a large multinodular goitre which I have been told is causing a \"cold\" spot. I now feel terrible, I feel as if my body is carrying large weights, I am having lots of palpitations and have now developed a sore throat and a \"tickly\" cough. I am going to see my GP tomorrow but has anyone else had these sort of symptoms just starting the drug. I have to wait the outcome of the FNA to find out how I am to be treated.

    I have been diagnosed with graves and have itchy palms and tingly throat- not sure if it is side effects of carbmazole or the over thyroid!

    Don't be surprised if you get really moody, snappy, and flip at the slightest thing , I am going through this at the moment and my kids are going through it to , not nice just want to be normal again.

    hi there yes i know that feeling all to well and completely sympathise. i have been on my 2nd lot of carbimazole treatment .The tablets are kicking in again but going through that phase where i feel like a differnt person and my usual tolerance levels are shot to bits . This is really tricky when trying to bring up children too . Luckily my kids have seen that the pills did work the first time and i did improve quite quickly , so it gives them some patience with me , but it is draining when you feel like this and there are little ones around . I wish you the best in your recovery and the symptoms will get better hang in there . If you are interested i have heard that reflexology is a great relaxer and balancer to help .
