Pleased to hear you are getting some answers finally! I thought treatment was supposed to be discussed with the patient. This clearly hasn't happened here!

I can't find any reference to cabisarol. Could it have been carbimazole or cabaseril? The former is for hyperthyroidism and the later for hyperpituitarism, I believe.

If your TSH is above 10 when your thyroid hormones are also high, it suggests secondary hyperthyroidism of some kind. Pituitary maybe? At least it seems that they are treating you now. I have to say I am not impressed with the way you have been treated by some members of your medical team. Hopefully they will investigate why your pituitary is producing so much TSH when you don't need it.

I hope you make a speedy recovery and someone actually starts telling you what is going on! It is disgraceful that you have had to keep asking for basic information.

Take care and please let us know how you get on.

Hi sounds like hyperthyroidism to me. I am a hyper and have done stints in the cardiac ward too. You are lucky that they bothered to do the bloods as they didnt with me. Hope you feel better soon.
