Hi I'm new to the group and am hoping to gain some knowledge and learn from all of your experiences with hyperthyroidism. I went to Drs early last week with tremors, shakes, weight loss and tiredness. Bloods taken and within 48hrs Dr called back to say that I was indeed suffering with an overactive thyroid and results were high. (I will take note of numbers on next visit). I have been prescribed 40mg Carbimazole and 40mg twice a day of propranolol. I am in the middle of the second week from diagnosis and I feel awful. Extreme tiredness, emotional, feel awful. I have been referred to Endo consultant for scans which should be within the next 2 weeks.
How long am I going to feel like this? It's hard to explain to family members how I'll I feel as I actually look quite well.
Any advice would be much appreciated. 👀
