    Hello Elaine,

    Apologies, I messaged you yesterday but forgot to say that for the past 2 days I've also had some hyper symptoms back including palpitations and poorer sleep....gosh Graves' is such a rollercoaster ride! I honestly thought I'd reached remission but with this am not not at all sure....?
    Am now wondering if I need to increase my Carbimazole dose back up to 1.25mg every other day rather than the every 3 days I've been doing for the past month? Was so hoping I'd be able to stop soon, which is so disappointing after almost 5 years.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Peaches,
    I'd do the carb every other day.. But remember that palpitations and sleep disturbances can occur in both hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. Your TSH is good, which is why I think you're close to remission. Best, Elaine
