Just looking for some advice and things I can or need to do to alleviate the pain.
I had swollen ankles, joint pain lack of sleep, over heating and weight gain this has been going on for over a year with my doctor putting me on frusemide 20 then 40 mg
On Friday 29th June I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and put on Carbimazole 5mg....1 tablet 3x a day so 15mg per day.
They also think I have rheumatoid arthritis.
I don’t understand my bloods so any help would be good, I had these taken 18/06/2018
