      Erica and Colleen and any others:

      My understanding is that simple iodine is given for a couple of days
      before the RAI to prevent thyroid storm. Did anyone who experienced
      thyroid storm have the simple iodine?

        Colleen- its nice to find someone who can understand what I am going thru.
        Thankfully the palpatations have stopped. My heart still beats about 80
        to 90 beats per minute when i’m resting. They tried me on different
        beta blockers, but like everything else I have tried, I had reactions to
        Inderal ans Atenenol as well. During the thyroid storm my heart was
        beating at 145 10 155 beats a minute and my temperature increased to over
        102 degrees. I also became so dehydrated that the veins in my arms began
        collapsing and they could not start a saline solution IV. It was the worst
        experience of my life. I am praying that I will not have to have another
        radioactive iodine treatment. I would rather die. I am only 22 and I hope
        I have not ruined my chance to have children?
        I do not know what to expect next? I wish you the best of luck….erica
