When you go back to your doc or perhaps a new doc, ask him to check out your hormone levels. I heard that unapposed estrogen caused Graves in some cases. I have no progesterone in my system, & am having that corrected. (I’m doing other things too ) I do feel better, but with the weight gain it might be worth looking at. As for the moodiness, I have had good success with meditation for that & depression. (to those of your whose docs have said depression isn’t part of Graves disease, I say if it looks like a duck & walks like a duck it’s a duck.)
Also, I learned a trick from my doc: put saran wrap over your eyes at nite (kind of tape it onto your eybrows & under your eyes so its like a sealed halloween mask.
Speaking of Halloween, with Graves disease don’t you think we could have an international Graves day symposium Oct 31?
It’s good somtimes to just vent our anger. Everyone here certainly understands, & the best thing is that we are here helping, each in our own way. Good to have you aboard. I’m so glad that Jake started it.Thanks Jake! Karen B
