I'm very new with this.. It has been an insane weird week for me. I went to a doctor on Monday and he said I have kinda bad asthma but that there was more going on. So he drew 5 viles of blood sent it off then I had to go back on Wednesday. I went back and he said my thyrois count was way hyper. It was 3 times the normal. So yesterday I went to an endo and it was confirmed graves so mainly im just seeking advice on the disease like what medicines work or don't and maybe just your experiences with it. I am only 18 and he said i was very close to a thyroid storm.. So I guess anything you can offer me would be amazing! Thank you!

Here lately I've been having these...
