      I figure that most of you are located in America so I thought I’d let
      you know about my experiences with GD in South Australia. I was
      diagnosed in March of this year and have been taking carbimazole, having
      decided that I’d rather take the chance that a cure might be found for
      this disease and I didn’t want to irrevocably damage an organ that isn’t
      the problem…assuming that the autoimmune system theory causing this
      disease is correct, that is.
      My symptoms are not very significant, with the disease originally
      showing up as a tremor and thumping heart noticeably at night, as well
      as some weakness in my legs when driving (actually when pressing the
      brake pedal at stoplights.
      Now I’m experiencing some hair loss which my Endo attributes to the
      carbimazole, so he’s reduced my intake to 4 tablets per day (was 6) and
      I’m on Thyroxine as well because I started to become hypo.
      Since being diagnosed, I’ve found out about 6 other people who also
      have it including 2 work colleagues so it really appears quite
      widespread. I’m glad to have found this support group and I’m spreading
      the news to others so that they can tune in if they wish.
