After having a baby I went to a doctor, I was hoping he will do a blood test but he did not and asked me to come back in 6 months. When I came back in six months I was having Thyroid storm it was too late. I ended up having heart attack. Latter on I was diagnosed with Hyperactive thyroid and graves disease. I couldn't even go and see endocrinologist because I was too weak after my pulse being 140 for few months so I was in intensive care. I could not understand why i was feeling so bad I did not even knew that Graves disease exist at all. I have been taking Merthimazole for six months now together with beta blockers but I have chest pains every day. I wend to 4 different cardiologist and they all confirmed that my heart recovered now and they think I am getting chest pain from anxiety which I do not think that I have. It is so frustrating they pin point it to anxiety so they do not need to look further and I keep fighting with them because it is not anxiety. I am starting to think that it is my upper stomach that is giving me upper left side chest pains as I feel gassy too and when I run it goes away. I am, so tired of being always in pain I am going to see a doctor this year and hopefully they will give me some answers. Does anyone else with Graves get chest pains? How do you deal with it? I feel that eating junk food makes it worse I also feel that running helps with pain most of the time. I am so tired of not feeling normal. Is there anyone who Overcame Graves, what supplements help to cope with it? I am mainly on inflammatory diet now. Thank you.
