I bit the bullet today and went to see another local doc! Took my thyroid test results for his opinion.
We discussed all my health problems!
His 1st reaction was that my thyroid test results were "definitely" Hyperthyroid! As he explained it, it was unusual to have the TSH, T3 and T4 all low in range? At least 1 of them should have been high? To be more specific, it was subclinical hyperthyroid, but taking all my symptoms into account, he said I was definitely hyperthyroid. He has prescribed 5 mg Carbimazole to be taken 3 times daily.
He then "tested me" for possible Parkinson's, because of the left finger tremor, but immediately ruled that out and diagnosed essential tremor. Prescribed 40 mg Propranolol HCL, to be taken once daily.
He did mention that the essential tremor could be related to the hyperthyroidism though, so this is a trial!
I have noticed that other people have posted that they have been prescribed both thyroid medication and beta blockers, as they seem to work well together?
Anyway! Fingers and toes crossed that I will feel better soon!
