I was diagnosed with Graves' Disease yesterday via a thyroid scan. This is my second bout of hyperthyroidism and I've never felt so rotten. I have no energy, my emotions are all over the place, i'm distracted and can't make decisions and I feel sick a lot of the time with a constant headache, sleep patterns are all over the place too. Now i have a big decision to make and Radioiodine seems to like the best option but I've read about so many people who have had awful experiences on this.
I'm still managing to go to work but i'm literally eating, sleeping and working. I'm wondering anyone else in the same position is getting on, are you managing to keep going? Have you any thoughts / experiences on radioiodine versus surgery...... An added note that i'm 29 and although my partner and I weren't planning on trying for kids any time soon it is something we both want to try for in the future, can RAI affect fertility??
