Hi all. I have Graves' disease, diagnosed in May but unsure how long I had this as I was putting my symptoms down to menopause. Dizziness, palpitations, intolerance of heat, sleepless nights, hand tremors, aches, pains and stiffness in joints the list goes on. The symptoms just sort of crept up on me but I've been feeling worse since the beginning of this year.
I have always been a very easy going person yet I now find myself getting irritable at the least bit thing, very unlike me so I'm wondering if anyone can shed light on this, if something annoys me I get this feeling of rage then I go all hot and I can feel my face getting red, it's awful. It's hard to explain it but i know all you good people with your knowledge and experience will be able to either relate to me or at the least understand how I feel.
I'm currently on 20mg of carbimazole and also taking propranolol for palpitations while waiting for the carbimazole to kick in.
My next endo appointment is the middle of August, I have to get a blood test the week before the appointment then collect the results to take along with me. It's only my second appointment and will discuss this with him as well, just wondering if my moods and rages are going to get better along with the rest of these symptoms when my medication kicks in.
Thanks for reading.
