Hello. I have just joined and hoping someone can put my mind at rest. I have an overactive thyroid and am waiting for an appointment to have the iodine pill. Before Christmas my FT4 was at 24 and my endocrinologist prescribed 10mg carbimazole daily. After about 4 weeks I started to feel a lot better. However, my husband was taken into ICU in February and what with being sick with worry, I have to admit my remembering to take my pills was not something I did. When I went for a blood test 2 weeks ago my FT had risen to 43.4. The endo phoned me to ask if I had been taking the carbimazole which I had to admit I hadn't remembered all the time. He said that the stress and worry and not taking the prescribed dose had resulted in the rise and put me on 30mg a day. My husband thankfully is on the mend now but I feel really unwell again, worse than before. I'm quite worried with this high result. Has anyone else experienced this?
I am taking the pills religiously now but it's been a fortnight and I don't feel any improvement yet
