I was diagnosed in June of '08 and had RAI in August. I've been taking synthroid. I know one side effect is hair loss but does that ever go away or will I just keep getting balder as I keep taking it? I'm losing most of the hair right above my temples on both sides of my head. I've been using Nioxin for about a month and I notice a difference but not a big one. I read somewhere that Evening Primrose Oil is supposed to help with regrowing hair. Has anyone else heard this or tried it? Or anything else that works?! I'm getting really scared that I'll have to shave my head soon, or buy a bunch of hats! Help please!

I am a 30 yr old female, I have had two children, both with different health problems. When I first became pregnant 6 years ago I started having problems with ahortness of breath, fatigue, weakness, and blurry vision (sometimes complete loss of vision). 2 years ago my oldest son passed away at the age of 4 after this my symptoms worsened. My children both had different genetic heart conditions...
I have Graves and hyperthyroidism. T3 and T4 levels are coming within range. TSI is 325 which represents a drop. However, I get charlie horse cramps in both calves. This makes walking and driving almost impossible. In two weeks I'll be tested again. Has anyone else dealt with this? I don't really know if it is related to Graves or Hyperthyroidism but I am really tired of this pain.
