I've had Graves disease for some 9 years and couldn't be stabilsed. Any stress would set it off again although I even went into remission once. I felt awful for most of the time even though on carbimazole and was unable to make plans as I'd never know how I was going to be feeling. I'd tried all the alternative methods with supplements etc.
On 1st February I had RAI and can only say I wish I'd done it sooner. I went hypo very quickly with a TSH of 42 (even than wasn't as bad as being hyper) and was prescribed levothyroxine 75mg. I quickly started to feel better and I can now honestly say I have had a life changing experience. Even my swollen eyelids have gone and I have twice the energy I had. If there is anyone considering it and resisting for whatever reason I can only say go for it. You may swap feeling awful to feeling good as I have.
