      I insisted on a Thyroid Receptor Antibody test to prove that I did not just have postpartum
      thyroiditis. It came back positive and I realized I had built my hopes up in a major way
      that it wouldn’t be. I’m scheduled to consult with the radiologist on Monday since PTU is
      making my skin flushed and I’m not improving at such a terrific rate.

      How long will I not be able to hug my infant and my two older girls? I know that I would
      have to sleep separate from my hubby for two days. What’s this stuff about
      dental problems and salivary glands? Is that if you drink the liquid, take the pill or
      either one? How long does it take to feel well if your uptake scan wasn’t that lousy to begin with?

      And a big question: Not everyone gets the eye problems right?

      Thanks! I’m in need of some knowledge to help the anxiety ebb. Glynis

        Only 15% lucky GD patients get eye involvement. It’s not a very common sympton but evidently a very
        troublesome one. I have had GD 43 years now and I don’t have any eye problems. Neither do my mom or
        her sister and their father did so there’s no predicting it. Good luck!
