I Erica, I went thru thyroid storm 18 month ago and spent a few days in the hospital
It’s pretty scary and I continue to taking the beta blockers even after taking the
atomic cocktail 6 months ago. I sometimes wonder if I did the right thing consenting
to that procedure. I put a message out earlier this week labeled “bedtime stories”
I wished I’d found this support group last year. I wished I could tell you things
are alot better but I’m still not able to exercise, always huffing and puffing from
the exercise of doing anything. After the RAI treatment I had alot of trouble with my
hands and right arm hurting and swelling. Do you still have palipatations? I’ve found
that people who go thru thryroid storm have trouble adjusting to synthryoid because the
medication makes the palipatations worsen for a couple months. I wonder if the what I
went thru 18 months ago damaged my heart, haven’t gone to a heart specialist but intend
to soon. Please ask as many questions as you can before the RAI treatment. If I had it
to do all over again I may have tried some homopathic alternatives, herbs, vitamins, etc.
Let me know how your doing. I’ve never found anyone that went thru what I did!
