Hi all. First off I would like to thank everyone who has helped me and replied to me so far with my many questions and queries! Your advice is greatly appreciated.
It seems I have been diagnosed with Hashimoto's, so my endo said into his voice recorder! (Who was extremely nice by the way). He advised my current dose of Carbimazole for 18 months and that there would be about a 50% chance of relapse or remission.
We talked about breastfeeding, and the pros and cons of effectively weaning onto formula so as to allow for an increase in dosage and therefore better chance of remission, this was all new to me and I have a lot of thinking to do about that as I am a staunch breastfeedig advocate, however I need to be in the best of health more, for her sake. (Should add here that I have also experienced a dip in milk supply, and becoming more and more physically weak with it).
I mentioned I was concerned about a pain in my ribs, slight sore throat.
He thinks the rib pain may be musculoskeletal as I now weigh 7 1/2 stone which is a far cry from what I weighed even 3 months ago. He said that the sore throat is unrelated and breathlessness we never got to as I forgot I would welcome any opinions on (I am also on propranolol). I would welcome any opinions on any of the above!
The last couple of days I have been feeling more under the weather than normal. I am really concerned about the risk with Carbimazole and its effect on WBC however my WBC last week was 8.6 10*9/L (3.9-11.1) so I'm kind of normal there.
Would greatly welcome all any advice here.
