Brief synopsis of what I've been through.
Nov 2012 diagnosed with hyperthyroidism given carbimazole
Had an allergic reaction to carbimazole which resulted in admission to hospital as could not walk.
Dec 2012 radioactive iodine treatment
Feb 2013 began taking levothyroxine
April 2013 switched to armour
Been gradually increasing the dose of armour.
My most recent endocrinologist appointment was on 15/8 where it should of been my last as reached the optimum dose of armour for someone with no thyroid, stay on that dose for the rest of your life bye bye. The bloods were all in there ranges (I live in the USA so measured differently to uk) but I said I was still feeling rotten. Tiredness, muscle aches, depression. He said I might be having some problem absorbing so he upped the dose from 180mg to 240mg. Since I increased the dose I have been experiencing symptoms of an allergic reaction very similar but not as bad as the ones I experienced with carbimazole in nov 2012. Hives, swollen lip, swollen knee, difficulty walking (especially up + down stairs) sore throat + restriction in breathing. Itchy hands and feet. These symptoms seem to come and go, never really remaining constant.
Phones my endo + he has taken me off the medication.
But I feel so disheartened as now right back to where I was 6 months ago.
Has anyone had any experience with these allergic like symptoms. I looked up hives + it sounds like it could just be the result of having a autoimmune disease.
If anyone could help with this I would much appreciate it
