I ve been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism caused by Graves Disease. I m hate this. It hurts my joints, unable to walk with fear of falling, sore throat, A-Fib symptoms after a heavy meal. I m on second medicine. This has happened sudden. I m obese with type two diabetes, non insulin. Is there a Medici e I ve taken to cause this? I don t want surgery to remove my thyroid ( normal size), what options do I have?

Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, it is not the medicine or the medical condition that could causes such symptoms but it is the depression which might be due to your hate of disease but now you have to face the reality and continue the treatment without fear, be positive, and practical, hope this information helps.
