Re: Help, MANY ongoing symptoms...

My doctor suspected graves and I had a thyroid scan. It involves taking a small bit of radioactive pill and going back the next day. It's called the uptake test too. Mine was normal. Another poster, Nikki, says a ultrasound is sufficient in showing abnormalties. She had problems after the test,(scan) with her eyes watering.I remember, now feeling a bit more hyper after. You have a lot of thyroid problems in your family, it's inherited, even though they weren't hyper. Auto-immune disease. A free t-3 and t-4 and antibodies testing should be done too.
