I was hypothyroid for quite some time and thanks to you guys I pushed and eventually got a diagnosis, but by that time my thyroid had become overactive. I had been prescribed Carbimazole which ive been taking for 3 weeks, but my blood tests last week showed that I am now back into hypothyroidism. Ive been told to stop taking the tabs, have more bloods in 3 and 6 weeks and see them in 2 months. The doctor I saw in clinic was only an assistant and wasnt very helpful/?knowledgeable. He told me that perhaps I was losing my thyroid gland altogether (??after only a year?) or that it is too sensitive to the meds.
When I took this med 2/3 years ago it worked wonders and I was well again within weeks, which is why im really worried now.
Does anyone know whether this is normal or what these ups and downs mean?
This assistant also said the hot feelings im experiencing are nothing to do with the disease as I should be feeling cold not hot, and that there may be another cause for these flushes and sweats. Im sure he is wrong, can anyone clarify??
