Hi' i am new to this but i have been reading some of the posting on here about graves' disease. I found out 3 weeks ago i have this.
It has really been hard.the way the drs found out was my blood pressure and heart rate was high i had to be rushed to the hospital
they did some blood work and thank god the er doctor run the test to see how my levels looked.but any way i feel tired all the time i am loosing weight so fast and my mood swings are terrible. i am happy one minute and crying the next i told my doctor that i felt like i was going crazy. i can feel my body going through so many changes.i can't stay out side because the heat makes me hot then i want to pass out. i need to be in a cold room,i know how all of you fill this a terrible disease i go next week to see a cardiologist they seem to think my heart may be damaged by fast heart rates, they would go as high as 175 beats a minute.i already have mitral valve prolapse so they think that it has caused more problems there. but i just wanted to let you know i know how you fill.smiley - sadface
