    Thanks for the information and enlightenment. I’m going to take the RAI in
    January and am feeling alittle scared. I was diagnosed a month ago but
    have been feeling “off” (swelling eyes, pounding heart, aching legs)
    since the birth of my daughter 17 months ago. I thought it was just stress.
    I finally went for a physical last month and he said that my thyroid levels
    were at 22 (whatever that means) so… I had more blood work, a radio active
    scan, and an ultrasound, they called the next week and said it was definately
    graves and that I would have to do the RAI by the end of January – (My mom
    has it too but didn’t get it until her late 40’s – I’m 34) Anyway,
    I’m just blathering now. Thanks for posting, your story made me breathe
    a sigh of relief – Good Luck!
