Hi, after 8 months of feeling not myself with a 2st weight loss, panic attacks, anxiousness, mood swings, tearfullness, tremors & feeling like I'd lost control of my body I was 5 wks ago diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism, I got my results over the phone after blood tests,& was going on hols the next day so Doc prescribed 3 x 5mg of Carbimazole per day & said as a surgery they don't usually treat & has referred me to an Endocrinologist. I have felt gradually better and put on 10lb had further blood test last wk at Docs & been told my level was 29 (not told what level this was!) but is now 19, Doc said normal range was 9-19 (presuming this is T4?) but I've read that normal T4 is between 4-12.5 Doc said I can stop taking the meds but keep Endo appt - this isnt until 14th June so am now concerned if I stop taking and Doc has misinterpreted the results (they admit don't normally treat at surgery) I will go back to where I was 5 weeks ago - any advice greatly appreciated - Thankyou
