    Graves disease, internal muscles, carbimazole & breathing problems

    Hi there

    I am a long time patient who now is experiencing internal neuromuscular problems during the course of my disease ongoing.
    Now having problems eating and breathing. I dont usually go to holpital anymore but i need to get myself back to clinic to ask about this too.

    I saw an abstract for a paper about disphragm muscles, graves disease and it being fixed by carboimazole.

    Does anyone know if it's specifically helped by the carbimazole itself, or just the disease being under control?

    I am on PTU having not had bloods need a change following pregnancy 7 years ago and not being willing to be messed about for the sake of it.

    Cheers

    Dennis

    hello hun, I have never been hyper and my temps have always been low so dont think I can help you much with carbimazole. I know Mike has been through a lot and Grave's disease so perhaps he could tell us if has any experience with this.

    Hi. I have Graves disease. Its been a nightmare and severly messed my life up.
    However, i,ve learnt to cope and things are generally improving. I have been on Carbimazole 20mgs daily since the diagnosis and
    the majority of symptons are more manageable these days. My last blood test showed my thyroid was relativly normal which is good news.
    I was also looking into how diet affects my condition and adapted to what i think suits me. I dont know if that helps you but i can definetly empathize.
    Warm wishes........
