Since last year I have suffered from dizziness and a feeling of going to faint, although I never have.
It came to a head in January after feeling unwell over Christmas. At the start it was the dizziness and palpitations so checked my heart and all well. I was diagnosed with over active thyroid and B12 and folic acid defficiency (these two now sorted)
They started me on propanalol for the palpitations but had a nasty reaction to it so couldnt take.
Eventually these put me on 20mg of carbimazole which I was taking for about 3 weeks...and then it attacked my liver function and again was very unwell.
So basically I have been off work since beginning of January with no medication. I am asking for support to see if anyone has been through the same and come out of the other side
I have horrible palpitations, almost racking my teeth sometimes. Great anxiety (not driven for quite some time now!) tinnitis in my left ear. Great lethargy, weight loss. I have had a scan of my thyroid and I have a goiter with nodules...or lumps and bumps as it was put.(lymph nodes were fine) Over the last 10 days my neck and upper chest seem tight, swollen and my neck around my thyroid throbs and can be painful. I do have an endocrinologist appointment this week and hope that they seriously just put me through the operation so I can start to move forward. Has anyone had the job lot of symptons? also how long to recover from the operation as desperate to get back to work and feeling 'normal' rather than feeling pathetic and a recluse having to be ferried around when I have appointments
Thanks for reading and really look forward to hearing from someone that has been through this and moved on to be normal! lol :-)
