You sound in a bad way and the only advise I can give, as I dont know anything about having an over active thyroid, is not to wait until March but try and pull your appt forward.

You need to get this sorted out now with either your consultant or GP. Don't wait!


I had an overactive thyroid and was allergic to carbimazole. I changed to PTU which suited me better. I am sorry to hear that it does not suit you - but I really think you should see your consultant urgently - hyperthyroidism can be very serious if not treated, and I am sure they will be able to find some other treatment for you :)
