I was informed 2 weeks ago that I probably have Graves; had the radio active scan done last week and am to see my endocrinologist tomorrow to discuss treatment. I probably have had this disease for several years; it’s funny how the symptoms can ease their way into your life and you figure they’re from stress or whatever. Until you can no longer ignore the pounding heart and shakes, etc. I was thrilled to find this BB; seeing what others are going through helps. I’m pretty sure that I will choose radioactive iodine as treatment as I don’t want to mess with pills to counter the hyperthyroid; hypo sounds so calm versus what I feel right now! Can the hyper return after the radio active treatment?
