Avatar f tn Hi there! New to this forum. I'm a gal who has been hyper for years with graves. I'm profusely sweating, gaining weight and not able to get insurance w/o being hypo for a year.I'm supposed to be level on my blood work or a little bit low/high, not sure. I'm having bad joint pains too and developed a tigger finger out of the blue. I'm having a RAI scann in a couple weeks. What are your experiences with the ablations and going hypo, good, bad otherwise?
486038 tn?1300063367 Hi! I've been to Jacksonville, Mayo twice. Since I live in the Southeast I know a lot of people who have been there and had great success. My mother had carotid artery surgery a few years ago - very risky surgery - turned out great. She is going back in Nov. to have the other done as it is more than 75% blocked. She also had a hole in her retina or cornea, I can't remember which, repaired - and that went well too. My luck at Mayo has been so/so.
Avatar n tn Hi i read your post...the Mayo Clinic one of the best in the world recommends the "DASH" diet and Omega-3's but no matter which direction you go in make a quick call to your doc to make sure that the food groups that you are putting into your body do not react adversely with the meds you may be on. Your doc should be able to provide you with a print out of recommended supplements that you are able to take...
Avatar m tn Some here on the board are not real pleased with the Mayo clinic. It seems they have their own set of standards to give out a dx of MS. I personally know nothing about them and wish you the best....hoping for that answer.
627388 tn?1222198212 Has anyone from the MS forum ever seek treatment for their MS at the Mayo Clinic? If so, how was your as your experience with physicians from the clinic? I am considering driving up to Mayo at some point if my neurologist in town can't definatively diagnosis me.
823964 tn?1238826899 He is reluctant to put me on interferon/ribavirin therapy which would last 48 weeks, because of the risk of blindness from Graves Eye Disease. Although I have been euthyroid for four years, I was treated for hyperthyroidism from 2000-2002 with atenolol, tapizole and PTU, and currently have clinical evidence of mild Graves eye disease in one eye, demonstrated by lid retraction, and slight limitation of upward and outward gaze.
Avatar n tn After being diagnosed with Graves Disease, I opted to have my Thyroid obliterated using the Radioactive Iodine Therapy procedure. During the transition of losing the Thyroid, I lost a good portion of my vision in my right eye. Was told that the vision loss is due to AION (Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropothy). Once I lost my vision, I began to feel "unbalanced" or "light headed" at all times. Sometimes this feeling diminishes but it never really disappears.
1445110 tn?1388209711 I also am thinking it could just be me being paranoid since I have had such a hard time with Graves and Hashimotos. My brother also has Graves and many relatives in the family. Just wondering if anyone knows if that information might be true. I keep encouraging them to have the thyroid checked.
Avatar n tn I have had steroids for my eyes and and tapazole nothing has worked. I have toxic nodoles along with Graves disease. I have changed my diet and tried different things what do you suggest. I'm not sleeping, I have gained most of my weight back with increased heart beat. What can I do.
Avatar f tn I had treatment with I-131 at Mayo Clinic in 1986 for Graves Disease. I have been on Synthroid or Levothyroxine ever since. Recently, my TSH went way down. Although my dosage has been reduced from .112 to to .100 and now .088, I am continuing to have hyper symptoms after 8 weeks on .088, I have the scalp "raised spots" and other symptoms including throat and swallowing "fullness" and some ear discomfort, all on the right side. No shakiness though, which I had with Graves.
Avatar m tn How were you treated for Graves Disease? Are you now hypo? Are you on thyroid replacement hormones? If so, which ones, what dosage and for how long have you been on it? It's possible that you need to increase your med dosage, if you aren't losing weight. Typically, when thyroid hormone levels are adequate weight will come off. If you have current labs you could post, that would be helpful for us.
Avatar f tn I have just made an appointment for a full work up at the Mayo Clinic, does anyone know the tests involved and how much they charge? Thank you!
582396 tn?1259863489 I am over the moon excited that DH got a 5-10 day appointment at Mayo Clinic - Dec. 10. Anyone have any experiences on what to expect etc?
1264955 tn?1381782221 Has anybody here been to the neurology clinic at the Mayo or in their inpatient pain treatment program?
Avatar n tn Her neurologist gave her few details as to what he thinks is causing this and wants to send to her to the Mayo clinic. Any thoughts on what this problem is or what to do next??
Avatar m tn I am a 45 year old female who was diagnosed with Graves Disease in Jan 2006 and have been treated successfully with PTU ever since. My lastest blood work came back with a TSH level of 0.73 mUnit/L (the only test my current endocrinologist will run.) Last week while on vacation, I started noticing my hands and feet going numb. The large toe on my left foot is numb most of the time, and at times painful. I am waking up night with my hands, feet, arms, and legs tingling.
Avatar m tn Truthfully, I've heard one of the best MS Clinics in the US is the Mellen Center at Cleveland Clinic. You might try checking out They list all the clinics available, etc. My neuro said the clinic at Cincinatti isn't that great but thinks Cleveland Clinic is really good. I've never heard of the Mayo Clinic being highly rated for MS, but more for heart desease.
Avatar f tn I've just been diagnosed with Graves' Disease. I have autoimmune thyroid disease that has changed from being primary Hashimoto's thyroiditis to Graves's Disease. I was diagnosed in 1997 with Fibromyalgia. I also have severe osteoarthritis, especially in both hands. What am I doing wrong? The doctor told me I'm a very strange case. What's that mean?
Avatar f tn I also have Graves disease and from my understanding you are never "cured", but, once your thyroid is either dead or you have it removed you should no longer be suffering from the symptoms. Except the protruding eyes, that is the only symptom that they can't reverse. That you are going to have to live with for the rest of your life. That's why it's so important to get treated before that happens. I would say that your tiredness is from being perimenopausal.
Avatar n tn If you don't mind. I see you posts starts out as Graves Disease and you are looking for a surgeon? While I would have to do some checking around on this can you post the reason for the removal? - Is it for Graves disease?
Avatar n tn I have graves disease. Does hcg stimulate the thyroid alot? In the small doses that you take on the diet would it affect my thyroid? I am on tapazole 1mg a day.
Avatar n tn In short, though, if you have Graves' Disease, your immune system is mistakenly attacking your thyroid.
1166523 tn?1264364643 Glad things are going well. Sounds like she is moving right along. Demyelinating Disease is a disease which damages the myelin in the Central Nervous System. It is not a diagnosis in itself usually.
