I got my diagnosis this afternoon.
The doctor has confirmed that my hyperthyroidism is caused by Graves' disease with positive TSH receptor antibodies. I have been prescribed carbimazole . 3×5 mg tablets in the morning. He suggested that I will prob not feel my optimum self for the next few weeks as I get use to the medication.
Mind you I am already not feeling my optimum self, my symptoms have become more intense over the past week with increased heart palpitations, hot skin, insomnia ( getting an average of 3 hrs) itching etc
I am keen to understand how this treatment has impacted others in the first few weeks and what I should expect or plan for? I.e should I lighten my workload for awhile at work etc
