Hi I'm new here. Having been having symptoms for a few months, am six months post natal and have been told my thyroid is overactive! symptoms include feeling hot, increased heart rate, sick, dizzy and aching joints. Have seen an endo at a private hospital and he was 99.9 per cent sure it was post partum thyroiditis, my antibody test for graves disease was negative. he recently re did the tests and my results are still abnormal and would have expected them to be improving as this condition should correct itself. He has now decided that its Graves even though the test has been negative twice and there is no family history!!
I have been put on beta blockers to slow my heart rate and am taking 20mg twice a day of carbimazole. I was actually feeling a lot better other than a fast resting pulse so was surprised my results were still too high, my neck feels a bit weird as he said my thyroid is slightly enlarged. Any advice?
