As the title says I'm new here and am looking for some advice please,
I was diagnosed with over active thyroid around 4 weeks ago, 9 weeks after having my little boy.
My consultant said it could be graves because my levels were so high ( 97? ).
He put me on 20 mg of carbimazole twise daily and 80mg of beta blockers.
I was feeling fine before being diagnosed so I didn't really know what was going on to be honest.
Well around 4 days ago I started feeling VERY dizzy, and after pushing to be seen by a doctor my pulse was too slow ( 43 bbm ) so he took me off the beta blockers and give me 10mg incase I feel I need one if my heart goes fast.
I'm still feeling very dizzy and tired, which is very annoying when I've got to look after a 13 week old.
My pulse rate now at rest is 60 but just by me doing my hair it goes up to 120, should I take the 10mg beta blocker?
But my question is do you think my dosage of carbimazole is too high? It's a Saturday so my consultant obviously isn't in work and I don't know what to do
I'm starting to feel very down about it all.
My next blood test is the 19th so in two weeks and my last one was around 4-5 weeks ago
If you could answer my questions I'd be very grateful. Thank you
