am really pleased i had come across this site. Rather than my previous moan I thought I would give a bit of history!!
My symptoms have probably been since puberty, as a child I was always the fat one!! In 95 I lost a lot of weight without trying.... Bliss. This continued until 97 when I began to run on fresh air! I didn't sleep much, always on the go but tearful and having palpitations. Thus I went to my GP. he diagnosed depression and I began my prozac journey. march 97 I had a blood test that showed hyper thyroid,carbimazole started. Sept/oct really unwell turns out I was 12 weeks pregnant!! not alot happened whilst I got a neat little bump. My son turned out 59 cm long , 35 cm Head circumference due to my hyper thyroid? he is now 15 and 6ft 1!! Carbimozole restarted but by Oct 99 they did a total thyroidectomy. I have coped over the years and DR's decide occasionally to drop my doseage but I believe now I have found your support I will stick to my guns and take what suits.
