By the end of 2005, I was starting to feel very tired all of the time and
was having alot of trouble sleeping, so I finally started on PTU for the Graves Disease
. Within weeks, I developed a mealy, intensely itchy rash on over 80% of my body. At one point, I thought I would lose my mind over the itching alone. My endo changed my prescription to Methimizole, but the itching was relentless.
After three months on the thyroid medication, everything came crashing down.
