I've been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism for just over 6 months and am currently on carbimazole and propranolol. I was feeling a lot better once I got the meds right.
I had some time off work about 2/3 months ago as I was feeling like I was at 'rock bottom'. I got myself sorted and went back to my normal life. I am now starting to feel very stressed and run down. I'm getting cold sores etc which I only ever get when I'm very run down. Is this part and parcel of life with a overactive thyroid? I asked my doctor and he did say that as well as the thyroid issue reducing my immune system the carbimazole does too?! What chance do I stand to lead a normal life if I'm feeling like this every few months? I will say that my original symptoms are better but I'm left with this issue.
Does anyone one else have this problem? How do you manage with it please?
