I was diagnosed with GD about 8 weeks ago. I had lost a lot of weight, about 10lbs in 3 months without trying. I was active and took my vitamins daily however this was not new and the weight loss was. My blood work is as follows: TSH .02, T3 247, FreeT4 1.8. My symptoms include tremors, weak muscles, hot, heart racing and beating hard to name a few. I stopped my vitamins and was put on atenalol for my heart rate which was over 100 most of the time and in the past was in the 60's. I have seen two thyroid specialists one which recommended RAI and the other just explained in detail the 3 options. I am 28 years old. I was recently married and my husband and I would like to start a family soon. We are weighing the options for what would be the safest considering we still would like to have children. I have started acupuncture and just had another blood test yesterday, I will update the thread as soon as I get the new results. Please any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. :) Thank you!

Through Gods grace we got to spend Christmas Eve together as a "blended family" and I made peace with his gf.Then he had a stroke Christmas morning and passed away today. My poor stepdaughter has been in ICU every day and my heart hurts for her and all of my children. My stepdaughter asked me if he had a DNR and I was able to contact a lawyer who said he was going to meet with him this week...
