Hi all I’ve been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism about 2 years ago and am now on 5mg carbimazole once a day. The endocrinologists that I see all say I should have RAI treatment and that I will most likely be left hypothyroid but not to worry as they can medicate me for that. I don’t see the point in swapping one problem for another one..what does anyone else think? The problem that I have now is, suddenly I have high blood pressure and high cholesterol..I take 8mg of Candesartan for the blood pressure but have declined statins for the cholesterol. I also suffer extreme sweating which is stopping me from doing things ,as it’s not a good look when I look like someone’s upended a bucket of water over me. I have restless leg syndrome too which keeps me awake when it’s bad. My GP tells me that it’s possible all these symptoms could be caused by my hyperthyroidism and if I have the RAI treatment it could help. I really don’t know which way to go and I’m hoping someone on here can help. Also, should I have private blood test done and if yes ..which ones? Thank you if anyone reads and advises me...I’m so sorry it’s all rather long winded.
