Detailed Answer:
Good day.
I guess I answered your question already.
We need little bit more information. Do you have an enlarged thyroid gland? Did you use Amiodarone anytime in the past?

We need to identify the cause of thyrotoxicosis .Because , some type of thyrotoxicosis do not require Carbimazole. You may need a thyroid nuclear scan +/- TSH receptor antibody test. This will give a clue about the exact reason of thyrotoxicosis. Again I feel the dose of Carbimazole is inadequate to control the situation.

It takes up to 3 to 4 weeks for hormone control Nd after that you may feel better. Did you meet an endocrinologist? May I request you to attach the full reports of your blood tests if available?
