Hi everyone. At the begging of May I was diagnosed with an over active thyroid and I think they are saying I may have Graves. I'm waiting to see a specialist in July, but they have contacted my surgery about me starting on Carbimazole 20mg. This is all well and good but I am actually terrified of medication. I have suffered rapid heart beat for ages because I am to afraid to take beta blockers. The side effects sound absolutely terrifying. I'm terrified of taking this drug in case it makes me feel worse than I already do. I know I'm stuck and I know that this is serious but I'm truly frightend. The thought of it affecting my clearinghouse makes it impossible for me to take.
