    You will feel better when you get some help from a specialist and normalize your FT4 level

    Hi Gail,

    I have the same symptom like you after taking methimazole 5-10 mg for 2 months.

    I dont have any idea when thesesymptom  will be going away. I can not stand it anymore. 

    Hope for the best for both of us

    Maybe RAI is another option.

    Good luck, God bless you!
