I was diagnosed with Graves 3 months ago, found myself in hospital 2 days after the diagnosis with A-Fib and a heart rate of 185 bpm. I`m 63 and its thought because of age is why I ended up with A-fib. I was given carbimaole 40 mg- now reduced to 15 mg, warfarin and beta blockers but I didn`t take those for long as they made feel faint.
Anyway I saw an endo who arranged a 24 heart monitor, which came back great with no sign of A-fib now. Endo also arranged for me to see an eye specialist - and again everything is fine, I saw the eye doctor yesterday and my eyes are ok.
I`ve had /got other health problems going on unconnected to the thyroid and I`m tempted to go straight for the RAI and get this health issue out of the way ( or being controlled better.) I`ve been doing my research on the internet and there`s mixed feelings about the RAI - but taking my age and other things into account and now hearing that the 2 latest blood tests showed my liver function as borderline - I`m wondering if in my case it may be best to get it done. Any opinions either way will really be appreciated, as you all know this is a tough one to decide. Oh and by the way even though my levels are `normal` I still feel tired and not myself most of the time.
