My name is Oliver, 27 years old and recently been diagnosed with graves disease.
I had been feeling under the weather for some time but I put it down to working shifts and a two hourly commute each day. I started with chest pains a couple of months ago so decided to go to the doctors.
At first a blood test gave my gp reason to believe I have graves disease. At that time I was referred to see a specialist. Since then, I had a ultra sound of my neck, liver and heart and now the gp has reffered me as urgent. I'm still waiting for a appointment at this time. At the moment I haven't been prescribed any medication.
I've been asked to see my gp tomorrow. The receptionist phoned me the other day to arrange this. Does anybody have a idea of the reason for this?
I have all the usual symptoms: chest pain, pounding heart, a high heart rate (32 beats per 15 seconds) sensitive to heat, sweaty, fatigue and shaking in the hands and legs. I'm hoping to get seen in the next few weeks and get a hold of it. At the moment I get out of breath just walking down the stairs, never mind up them.
Nice to meet you all and I hope you are all winning against graves disease.
