My son was diagnosed with Graves a couple months ago. He is 34 yr. old. He has ALL the classic symptoms of graves. Endocrinologist has put him on methimazole. We haven't really heard much about the weakness and numbness, mostly in his arms and legs. At times he is so weak he can hardly walk up stairs. He is having such difficulty with fine motor skills, like unable to fully close his hands or grasp items such as a pencil or pick things up after what has become an issue with him constantly dropping things. I am concerned that the disease is worse then what the doctor has said was "caught early and mild". I can't image what severe would be with the condition he is in. I'm also wondering if there are more issues going on our if this is all part of having Graves disease? I have read and researched till I can't even see any more. Any help is much appreciated!
