I can't believe my luck in stumbling on this conversation. I've read it all (going back one year) and I'm encouraged at the reecovery everyone seems to have made.
I was diagnosed hyperthyroid in June after an agonising six month ordeal. Placed on carbimazole 40mg and propanolol 40mg o/d right away. Four months later I still feel weak, agitated and nervous although I have put on half a stone and my energy levels are somewhat higher. The doctors at endo say I may need to continue this medication (which I hate) for another year at least. My recent bloods came back yesterday with FT4 66 and T3 33. I'm likely to have a choice og RAI in a month or so.
I know you are not doctors but from the benefit of your experience, is it worth going through the RAI therapy? Shouldnt I just stick to the year long carbimazole instead... (BTW I'm 37/M/London)
