I was first misdiagnosed with a sluggish thyroid by my G P and went to a Endo. and was diagnosed with Graves . I have had the I131 on Nov. 15 2002 and since Jan. 2003 my thyroid was gone TSH level was 124. I felt like I was dieing. I now feel some better . The Synthroid is just not doing it for me and I have tried Thyrolar. It was way to much for me. I want to feel better soon . Oh my TSH is 11.69. I have faith that I will feel wonderful again. I have experienced alot from Jan. until now . I hope that I can help others and others can help me .
