      Colleen; I linv in New england. I was misdiagnosed with other things
      besides GD three times. They could not figure out why my heart beat so
      fast. It wasn’t until I thought I was having a heart attack that
      they sent me to the ER. Even then, they only “thought” I had a thyroid
      problem. When I was in the hospital this past week, I asked the doctor
      if I would have had a thyroid storm if I was properly diagnosed last year.
      He said no, this would not have happened. I was too far advanced, and
      now we are playing “catch up”. What surprises me is the number of eye
      problems people have with GD. My eyes have not given me any significant
      problems. I have had a lot of weight loss and insomnia the past six
      months. I had asked John earlier if he knew what would happen if I had
      to go through the radioactive iodine treatment again. Will the same thing
      happen.? I really don’t feel up to being in a hospital again.. I wonder
      if surgery would be better for me? Do you have any information on this?
      Thanks again……erica
