Hi folks, I've been reading through the group and picking up bits & pieces of information as I have found my endocrinologists to be lacking in conversation You all seem to know your stuff! I was more pleased to find out that thyroid patients can't be pigeonholed, no matter how much the Docs try to do it. One GP told me to stop eating as I was fat. Erm, yes I have come to you because I have put on weight when trying to shift it. You are supposed to find out why I am putting on weight. DUH!
To get to my question: How long can Graves reasonably go under the radar? I and my medical records can testify to muscle & joint pain from puberty, various degrees of severity. Put down to rheumatic etc. Since being on Carbimazole for 9 months, no pain. No discomfort. I have been in discomfort for so many years that I forgot what it was like not to be in discomfort. My only discomfort these days is due to being a little portly.
