    HELP !!!!!
    I was just diagnosed with Graves’ today. The first thing I did was to get
    on the net to find all the information I could.
    I am 32 years old, female, mother of 7 month old boy. I find this whole
    diagnoses perplexing. I am about 60 pounds overweight already and this
    whole fiasco came about because I was on Phen-fen. I really exhibit
    no symptoms of Graves’ at all except trembling fingers, which I
    understand is also a side effect of Phen-fen.
    What I have been reading here is scaring the hell out of me !!!
    At 5’1″ I can not afford another pound on my body.
    I have been presented with the usual treatment options. Frankly
    given a choice I wouldn’t do anything about it at all, but I understand
    that is not really an option.
    I would appreciate any feedback, scary or not. I have never known anyone
    with this disease. I really didn’t want to be the first on my block.
    Thank you very much.
