I had tests for Graves and see Doc on Thursday but I was wondering if anyone out there feels as horrible as I do?
I am never hyper feeling except when my whole body starts shaking otherwise I am so tired that I can hardly stay awake during the day and can't get a good night sleep b/c alway awaking.
I also have horrible pain in my eyes that comes and goes and I lose the strength of the left side of my face.
My lymph nodes in my neck are enlarged too
Someone say you feel the same or at least are felling something similar

  • From what you've put I should think your tests will show hypothyroidism which is what I have - bad fatigue, get tired easily, lack of energy the list is endless. All these should improve once your doctor puts you on meds, but you also have to help yourself get your body working for you. I look on it a bit like starting a car got to keep moving, you need to exercise, walk etc and watch your diet. You mentioned pain in your eyes so get your doctor to check you out for thyroid eye disease as well.Thyroid problems are not the end of the world - but like everything else they will be if you tell yourself they are.Good luck:)
