I am sorry that you are feeling under par. But a word of caution. Just because we “have” Graves, it doesn't mean that other things cannot go wrong in our bodies that have little or nothing to do with “thyroid.” If, however, we consult our doctors and insist that our thyroid levels “must be off” because of the way we are feeling, and the doctor checks those levels and finds they are OK, then the doctor's thinking typically stops with the statement “It's not your thyroid.” It is important to get the doctor's problem solving mode back on track by then asking “Well then, what IS IT???” Or words to that effect.
An illustration. A year or so after my treatment for Graves, my digestion was “off.” Then I began having some abdominal pain. It was determined that I had gallbladder disease, and I had my gall bladder removed. I could not believe how much better I felt. There had been niggling “off” issues for months. Had I only been focussed on “thyroid,” I could have suffered longer before we found out about the problem.
So, it's important to cast a wider net when we are not feeling well. It could be thyroid. That's what I usually have my doctor look at first. It's such an easy fix if whatever it is is caused by my thyroid levels. But if they are OK, we look for something else.
