I just turned 68 on September 28, and
a few days later I felt absolutely miserable. I felt sweaty, shaky and
out of sorts. First, I thought I was coming down with the flu
, but I knew it wasn't the flu
because I didn't have a fever, a sore throat or any of the usual flu
-like symptoms. I've been taking 5 mg of methimazole for graves
for the past couple of years.
