Hi everyone! I hope you all are doing well. I went to my doctors yesterday and she had the test results from my thyroid. There is something really wrong with it. She thinks I have Graves disease. I will be seeing a Endocrinologist (SP?) soon, we are hoping this week or the beginning of next week.
I know nothing about Graves except for what I have googled since yesterday. I do have alot of the symptoms but it doesn't say anything about it causing horrible pain everywhere or that it causes these wierd bumps. I asked my doc about that and her answer was that she thinks I have something else going on too (probably another AI) but that we need to treat whatever is messing up my thyroid first then see what symptoms still hang around.
So, at least I got some answers. I am scared to death of Graves because of what it does to your brain as far as memory problems. mood swings and even dementia. Does anyone know if you get your thyroid out due to graves does the mental stuff go away? I really hope so, I am still raising kids, I have to function mentally.
Anyway, I thought I would let you all know what was going on and I will post again when I know more. Take care.
