Hi everyone, Firstly can I say this forum is great - so good to be able to talk to people who understand this stuff!
I have been seeing my GP about hyperthyroid symptoms for the past month or so - she put me straight on Carbimazole 5mg 3 x a day and a beta blocker 3 times a day (changed to Propranolol 40mg 3xday today, up from 20mg). Blood test results came back and they reckon I have Graves' Disease. No sign of thyroid eye disease yet. Blood results were TSH <0.01mIU/L (0.35 - 4.94) - thyrotoxic, T4 33.7 pmol/L (9.01-19.05). Don't feel as bad in myself, shaking reducing a lot, palpitations reduced but still fast pulse rate (hence the beta blocker). Question is: are my results typical for first diagnosis? Seeing consultant in August.
Thank you and look after yourselves all of you.
