i was stable of Graves about 3 years before falling pregnant. All through pregnancy I was stable ( i was monitored constantly) and only 6 months post partum did i realise it had returned. I lost about 10kgs almost instantly. I have seen a consultant and am now on 30mgs of Carbimazole a day. I've just had the results to my latest bloods and have been informed by my GP that everything is looking a lot more under control and he is very happy to keep me on the same dosage. However i am so surprised - I thought my results were going to say something different… my symptoms seem to be worse - my heart beats, trembling hands, increased appetite - the usual, though I have no eye swelling or visible throat swelling either. I go from real hyper to a big slump and i find it increasingly difficult to get out of bed in the mornings… My moods have been erratic and i am getting the hot sweats though i will say that has calmed down a lot. I actually feel as though i have put on weight - I've never been a skinny person. Has anyone been through anything similar? I am terrified of putting more weight on more than anything. I have an appointment with a throat surgeon in a months time.. can anyone make any comments of if they have been through survey with graves disease and was it successful?
Look forward to hearing from someone/anyone in the same boat xx
