I know that Graves can cause the fast heart rate and palpitations.... however, I've been on a beta blocker the last 2 and 1/2 weeks (since all this started). My blood pressure was really dropping low as well as my heart rate.... 98/50 and heartrate of 60 or less. So, I am being tapered down on my beta blocker (Propranolol) and eventually will be taken off altogether. So, over two weeks time, I started at Propranolol 40 mg, four times daily, then three times daily, then twice daily, then 20 mg, twice daily, then 10 mg, four times daily, then 10 mg twice daily, and now 10 mg once daily (with the option of twice daily after 12 hours if needed per my symptoms). So... with that... today, my heart rate went up to 101.... but came back down after a half hour and taking an extra dose of my beta blocker (out of panic). Is this normal with Graves? and at what point do these symptoms subside? Or don't they?

I'm wondering if anyone has thoughts on being on PTU and methimazole during pregnancy. The research doesn't look great. I guess my main...
