Thanks to everyone who replied to my first blog re. rececently being prescribed carbimozole and the potential for weight gain.
I did not give enough information in the blog and will now give more.
I was diagnosed with a multinodular goitre and subclinical hyperthyroidism and a constant racing pulse on the 22/12/2012. My T.H.S. levels have been steadily getting lower for at least 7 yrs but T3+4 have been within normal levels.
I was referred to endrocrinologist just over a year ago. I had to insist that my GP refer me. I've since discovered that symptoms I've been suffering with for 15 years are in fact caused by the thyroid condition.
Until this prescription for carbimozole I have not had any medication. I have not yet got the meds and am unsure as to whether or not I will take them. I now realize I need to understand a lot more about this condition and find out what my options are.
I'm going to look into alternative and natural treatment programmes. I find the whole subject very complex as I'm sure most non medical people do at first. For the first time since my thyroid problem came to light, I started to feel really unwell 2 months ago with shaking arms and legs, extreme fatigue, blinding headaches, shakiness and feeling faint. Have also noticed indigestion (which I've never had before).
For those who said my prituarty gland needs checking, is this the case with a multinod. goiter diagnosis (goiter was found by ultrasound)?
I have never been on a forum until very recently and am not quick at respoding but thank you for all the support.
