So I went to the endo this morning and it looks like my thyroid is under control. I will remain on the PTU for 3 months and then start to wean from it, and I am to wean from the atenolol now. My question is, Since my thyroid is back to normal, does that mean I no longer have graves? I am so confused! And how come my legs are still sore and weak? Are they not linked at all? All this time I thought they were. Can I still have graves without all the thyroid trouble?
