I have increased metabolism and have been getting this medication
3 x propyltiouracil 100mg
1 x propal retard 80mg
It made me very drowsy in the evening and made me itch real bad. But it kept me 100% symptomfree.
Because of the itching and because he wants me off propal retard, my doctor changed my medication as of 17/3 to:
4 x Thiamazol 1A 5mg
2 x ½ propranolol 40mg
Where the first medication made me symptomfree in 12 hours, this medication is not making me symptomfree - maybe only 50%. My biggest symptoms are shaking hands and trouble breathing. I am still itching but doctor says to give it 3 days more.
And then he went on a long vacation as of this morning =/
So my questions are:
- Is there an alternative that will keep me symptomfree and that will not make me itch?
- I heard cabbage and acupuncture can do something for this disorder - is it true or just "crystal ball"?
- I heard different labs measure my blood in different ways - what should I ask the doctor to make sure I get the info I need for the future? I live in a very small town and the doctors are maybe not the most experienced, mine has to look in a book every time I ask him something about this disorder. (And it took him 4 years to find out what I had)
I am Danish and that might be why you can't find the drugs...
My diagnose is increased metabolism - and that's it. Whe I ask my doctor for more info, he just looks at me and says "Yeah well, it's an autoimmune thingy where your thyroid is affected".
I feel uncomfortable with his lack of knowledge - and I can see it's not weird since you ask what you ask.
I got an photo taken last week at a hospital that shows the left side takes radioactive contrast stuff into it and the right side doesn't. But I haven't been told what it means.
I wish I could provide you with more info, but I am sort of looking for the questions to ask my doctor to know more, since I have no clue and he neither, I don't know what to ask him.
