Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Yes. Muscle weakness and pain is present in cases of Grave's disease. You need to take the medication as the Doctor advised and also do graded muscle exercises and not overexert yourself. Even lifting the arms up would be difficult and painful on some occasions. If there is too much pain, you may apply pain killing gels or balms over the area and get relief.
