It took what seemed an age to be diagnosed over active, the endo started me on 20 mg carbimazole 8 weeks ago. Initially I started feeling better . However, this last 2 weeks ive been an emotional wreck, waves of agitation and anxiety and terrible sleep problems ( lack of) today has been my worst day since befor starting treatment, I feel like I'm losing the plot sometimes and obsessing about alsorts of things that are pointless.
I have had one occasion where I had to have a bold test as I picked up a virus bu all was well, then that lead to reading alsorts of horror stories about this.
Is this normal when taking medication for over active thyroid.
I've heard people say that the iodine treatment works better and you only do it once .
