Had blood taken on 6/11 as I thought I might be hypo alongside the peri-menopause however it turns out I have hyperthyroidism.
I don’t feel well, I am absolutely shattered wanting to sleep a lot and I feel as though I am on fire various times a day. My anxiety has also become a lot worse. My pulse is normal and I don’t have a tremor. My weight is also stable although I have been eating a lot more lately.
So, the GP has started me on Carbimazole 10mg (5mg twice a day). He wouldn’t prescribe propranolol as my heart rate is 80 despite my anxiety symptoms being very high. He will refer me to an endocrinologist and I need to go back for a repeat blood test in 3 months time. Does this sound right?
TSH <O.O2 (0.35 - 5.00mU/L)
Serum Free T4 31.1 pmol/L (11 - 23pmol/L
Serum Free T3 9.1 (3.9 -6.8pmol/L)
Menopause bloods were normal
