I am new to this forum and have been reading through many of the posts relating to hyperthyroidism & Graves. Some of it is very reassuring and other bits are a wee bit scary!
I'm wondering if anyone has been in my situation before and was hoping for some advice.
I was diagnosed with Graves disease over 2 years ago & was seeing an endocrinologist who was about to put me on medication when I asked them to do another (3rd) blood test. I felt my symptoms were disappearing & didn't want to take medication unnecessarily so when the blood tests came back normal I wasn't surprised & skipped out of the surgery thinking that would be it. The consultant did say he hadn't come across a patient with self-resolving graves before so he told me to expect it to return....
So that was 2 years ago & now my symptoms are back. It started with what seemed to be an allergic reaction (although I have no allergies) - I was covered in hives and my face was swollen for 48 hours. I have a heavy beating heart, a feeling of not being able to sit still, I can't sleep, have sore grainy feeling eyes and I am losing weight. I know I need to go & get more blood tests but I was wondering if anyone had experienced this before?
I don't want to go through all the tests again if it is likely to resolve again in a few months.
Any advice/insights would be much appreciated!
