I'm going to try to make this short: I'm a female 33, hyperthyroid, graves disease, overweight (biggest ever) was on methimazole two weeks but became allergic to it.....worst hives ever. Now my endo has me on PTU 200 mg a day. My metabolism is running 4xs higher then a normal one and slightly large. Has anyone been on PTU (this is short terminology) ? If so did your joints hurt? Once I began this medicine my joints have started killing me....is this normal? Will it get better? If not there is no more medication for me and I don't want my thyroid gone. My Mom has this but her levels were not as extreme as mine and she has been in remission twice.....so I know there is hope.
