Welcome to the forum. I'm new here too. You can call me Caro.
When is your appt? I know how this disease can be so devastating. I've been feeling very sick for over a month. I was diagnosed on June 8 with hyperthyroidism and last Mond my primary Dr. told me it is Graves. I started seeing an Endo over 2 weeks ago but things are not going well so I'll be seeing a new Endo next week.
I have tachycardia so I have to take a Beta blocker. Is your heart okay? If you haven't had your appt yet and your heart is going fast I recommend talking with your primary Dr. to see if he/she can give you something for it. Tachycardia is one of the very dangerous things we experience with this disease.
I hope you are feeling better soon. Keep us posted.
