Hi, I have Ulcerative colitis but not typical symptoms. I don’t have pain nor diarrhoea. I also have IBSC and following a fodmap diet which helps.
I started sertraline for anxiety 6 weeks ago with terrible side effects then one gp sent me to an endocrinologist. The ultra sound showed a slightly enlarged thyroid and some nodules. Going for a biopsie shortly and started Carbimazole 5mg two days ago. My normal gp doesn’t think I have a hyper thyroid. He said my bloods are border line and have been for years. But I have been ill for years!! My symptoms are trembling hands, fast heartbeat, bloated tummy and a general feeling of malaise like I am going to faint. I am only confortable in bed. I am considering packing teaching. I only work 3 days but they kill me.
How long to see an improvement with Carbimazole? I believe it can take up to 8 weeks for sertraline to work.
