I went to the ER about a month ago and was told that I had hyperthyroidism. I then ended up back in the ER in a different city a week later because my heart was beating so fast and I had chestpains, and numbing in my face. A CT scan was done and they injected me with iodine. At the time, I had no idea what affects iodine has on Graves. After their tests, they told me I had Graves. This is almost a month ago, and I still have not ben able to start meds because my primary doctor wants a thyroid scan done, and I have to wait 6 weeks from the CT scan because of the iodine levels in my body. In the meantime, I am vomiting daily, can't stand or do any physical activbity or I feel like I will faint, I am so tired, could sleep all day, yet I wake up and check the clock all night, and my eyes look like I have been crying non stop for days. Is there anything I can do to relieve my symptoms until my meds get started?? I am at my wits end!!
