I haven’t been diagnosed with Graves but I think I may have it. Can anyone share their experiences with it?

      @Drusilla I had a thyroidectomy on March 25,2022 . I feel so much better. I also have Thyroid Eye Disease . I weighed my choices between Radioactive Iodine and Thyroidectomy. For my the Radioactive iodine wasn't my best option as it can make the Eye disease progress. I felt better nearly immediately after my surgery. The recovery from the surgery wasn't bad. I had mine done at Ohio State University . I am pleased with the outcome 😀

      I had heart papiltations. Extreme muscle weakness in my legs. Tremors in my hands. Muscle spasms. My eyes are super sensitive to light. I was very irritable. My moods were all over the place. I had lost weight . My metabolism seemed to be in overdrive.

        @GrammyG that sounds very familiar. Were you able to get any treatment? How long did it take to help if so?

        @3minitotos I’ve always just been super thin, but I go from being freezing to feeling like I’m having hot flashes.
