This is my first time posting on thyroid disorders. I usually hang out in chronic pain and fibro. I was just diagnosed with Graves disease and I am scheduled to see a surgeon on the 11th. I have not seen my results, but I am a little confused as to why I am seeing a surgeon instead of an endocrinologist. I guess I need to ask my doctor what is up with that.
Anyway, can someone explain the difference between Graves and hypothyroidism? It seems like they are the same thing. I am really confused about this. Any input would be very helpful as I am very scared of this new diagnosis and have no idea what to expect.
I hope you all are doing well and have a wonderful weekend...Take care.
