I was diagnosed with graves disease just over a year ago. I lost 3 stone and its all creeping back on.
I am on carbimazole, I started on 40 mg and it took a long time for my levels to start reducing. I am now on a maintenance level of 10 mg daily but I feel awful.
I have started getting palpitations again, I have started having panic attacks frequently, I get pains in my chest and to top it off my body hurts all over, especially my legs. I cant remember the last time I had much sleep at night and I think I am going off my head sometimes. I am irritable and grumpy and my fiancé gets the brunt end of it. I am always falling out with him and sometimes I don't even know why. I am so tired It makes me depressed and miserable and sometimes I feel like giving up. I try my best to get on with life but my fiancé thinks im just being lazy because I am not physically fit to do things and want to go to my bed early or get up later.
I had my bloods checked last week and they are satisfactory.
can anyone help me
