I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism last June and have been on Carbimazole for the past year. I started on 20mg and am now down to 5 mg. My last bloods were TSH 5.11, FT4 16.6 and Free T3 4.7. My endo considers me to be euthyroid (clinically as well as biochemically) even though I have symptoms of hypothyroidism: fluid retention, tiredness, joint stiffness, tearfulness. The only time I have felt really well was when my bloods were at the low end of the normal range, TSH 1.59, FT4 8.2.
