I was diagnosed back in March with an over active thyroid caused by Graves' disease. I was having heart palpitations, fast heart rate, the shakes, headaches, losing weight despite eating my bodyweight everday. I was tired all the time. Stuttering and my memory was shocking. I was put on a 60g of carmibizole and 4 betablockers a day. I then began gaining weight getting lots of mouth ulcers burning tongue. Sore joints pain everywhere. I'm now off work Again with a possible kidney infection although there's nothing in my wee. I've been in agony in my kidneys for three days and I waiting for lab results on Thursday. I'm so depressed and find it hard to keep going everyday. I keep having to rest and any kind of big activity wipes me out for days. I've had to reduce hours at work. And I feel rubbish. No one seems to understand.
