Hi all, I was diagnosed with overactive thyroid in november last year and after a long process of GP appointments I am now on carbimazole. Started at 40mg and after bloods now show my thyroid levels are in a normal range I have been reduced to 10mg.
However, I still have a lot of symptoms - tremor, difficulty sleeping, tiredness all day, dizzy spells and headaches.
I have been tested for Graves Disease and I do not have thyroid anti-bodies. Yesterday I had a scan of my thyroid to look for any problem nodules and nothing showed up.
Can anyone identify any other causes of overactive thyroid? I feel like I am getting nowhere! My GP won't refer me to a consultant yet until he receives the official results of the scan. I am taking my carbimazole but feel completely helpless still feeling so unwell and with no real answers.
