Hi i am looking for some advice late in 2013 i was diagnosed with an overactive thyroid after 7 months of hell, a GP in the practice said i had anxiety and prescribe me Mirtazapine, my hair was falling out, also my eyelashes, eyes were bulging, i couldn't eat my weight dropped 2st to 7st i couldn't stop shaking, then in September of that year i saw another GP in the practice, he took my blood and called me two days later and told me my t4 was at 72, prescribed propanolol and carbimazole, i started to feel much better after a week, went to my hospital appointments for just over a year. I was taken off carbimazole in May 2015. the sad thing is the tremors and shaking have never really left me, my bloods were last checked in November 2015 and i was told all was normal. Since March this year the shaking has got worse and my feet hurt so bad, they get so hot and itchy and red, the palms of my hands are red, i cant wear shoes or trainers , and another GP has has put me back on Mirtazapine, says its anxiety, can anyone give me any advice please, as i don't know what to do as i have no life it just seems to be never ending, should say i am over 50, and widow. Thankyou
