My thryoid has gone into overdrive again, and I'm back on Carbimazole. I first got diagnosed with Graves disease in early 2009 and was on carbimazole for 18 months as I responded well to the pills. I started shaking again in May this year & discovered my levels were all wrong again, so I've been back on the carbimazole since then.
I'm really struggling this time though, I don't remember feeling so lousy the first time. We have just moved into a new home, so I'm probably trying to do more than I normally would, but I'm really struggling. I've read a lot of your questions & love that you all understand and support each other. Luckly my shaking has stopped, but I don't feel strong, I'm struggling to concentrate, my temperature def higher than it used to be, but I'm feeling tired all the time. I've done very little excercise since May, unless you count unpacking boxes & painting a fence. I don't feel any better if I get a good nights sleep.
I am really concerned, as my local hospital consultants (never seen the same one twice) are pushing me to get the radioactive Iodine, and I really don't like the sound of it. Has anyone tried any natural supplements to help their thryoid?
