So there seemed to be nothing wrong with me apart from a headache until one night my heart started pounding . Scared me - went to a and e with a bp of 270/160 !! Various tests later they found low potassium and magnesium . Had heart scan , slightly enlarged but all arteries fine. Had CT all ok except slightly enlarged kidneys . Was told they think I have Conns and sent off the tests . Then they found very overactive thyroid and put me on 40mg dose of Carbimazole . This was beginning of April . Endo appt next tues. since the Carbimazole I have constant leg cramps, muscle aches , skin has gone very dry and generally feel off kilter. Gp not interested - signed me off work said wait for endo. Are these symptoms normal for hyperthyroidism ? Any advice greatly appreciated . Is it normal to wait 5 weeks with no blood tests ?
Thanks for any help/ advice
