Since being diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism/Graves' Disease, I have been on my meds for a few weeks now and I am finally on a settled dosage:
Carbimazole 40mg a day
Propranolol 40mg x 2 a day
I have noticed that I get tired a lot easier now and unfortunately I feel like I am putting on weight I was advised by my doctor not to do any strenuous exercise so instead I have been going for a walk every day. However, I feel that this is not enough and I was just wondering what else I can do? I enjoyed going to the gym but that has been on hold for the past 2-3 months while being diagnosed, etc.
I have an appointment with my Doctor next Tuesday so I will ask for more advice then but I just wanted to ask other people in a similar situation when you were able to go back to the gym? And if you have any advice for me
P.S. I haven't started my Levothyroxine yet, my Endo has gone AWOL and they have rescheduled my appointment for after Christmas, so that is why I am seeing my Doctor next week to see what I should do next.
