      I have been reading a while and thought it was about time I introduced myself.

      I was diagnosed with Graves in July 1996 and I’m still at the
      propylthiouracil stage along with a little bit of synthroid. I was pretty far along by the time I was diagnosed mainly because most of my symptoms could be attributed to the fact that I was travelling in Asia for four months.

      I’m finally feeling better now that I am able to excercise and all my levels seem to be “normal”. I’m going to stay with meds for now, however, one more relapse will send me for the radioactive cocktail.

      On a more personal note, I am a 44 year old woman, living in Oakland.

      I have found this board to be very helpful and whoever is running it is doing a great service.

          Hi, I also had heart palpatations- my Dr put me on Tenormin after I had tried Inderal which gave me Nausea. I was put on this because my ekg showed wierd changes. As for the trembling that should go away with the antithyroid pills your taking. It took me about a month to get over that. Have you had the RAI treatment or thinking of it ? Sheryl
