I was diagnosed in 2008 with Graves Disease, was on Carbimazole for approx 2 years and all has been fine since.
It has recently returned with a vengeance and i've been started back on Carbimazole 40mg daily. I am awaiting a endocrine and ophthalmology (didnt have eye probs 1st time) consult.
I am 39 but also going through perimenopause and finding it hard to differentiate between the symptons?
My symptoms include shaking, brain fog, irritated eyes, constipation/diarrhoea, hot flushes/night sweats++++, anxious, irritable, palpitations (although have my beta-blockers now, so getting better) mood swings and emotional wreck.
Is anyone experiencing the same? I have seen people discussing a diet change? does this help? Any supplements that can help? I do smoke (max 10 a day), but am making a conscious effort to quit, as I know this doesn't help.
