      Hello-
      I was diagnosed with Graves 5 months ago but I didn’t believe the endocrinologist. I took Tapazole for about a month, then stopped when I developed a horrible rash. I had always been underweight but now I have GAINED 15 pounds since September. My eyes seem fine, my hair seems fine…my only symptoms are the irritability and exhaustion.
      My T4 is 1.99 and my TSH is .018. I have been scheduled for a thyroid scan and uptake for Monday. Has anyone else been in this situation? The blood test readings haven’t changed so I now believe that I really may be hyperthyroid. My endo has given me a prescription for PTU that I am to take after the scan and uptake. What the heck is going on here???
