Hi all,

I just got diagnosed with a severe case of hyperthyroidism: TSH < 0.01 and T3 > 600
I am so scared and have no idea what to do. My doctor say I should go with radioactive iodine, but I am 27 and don't know if that would be bad if I want to have kids later.
Also, I have been gaining a lot of weight. I am crying all the time and need help. Any insight?
