Post My Dr suspects Graves

What are the main symptons for this, I have fast heart rate which is the main thing, thyroid tests come back within range, should the antibodies be tested?

Try doing a search of "Symptoms of Grave's Disease" and you'll find LOADS of info.

Post your test levels if you have them. Within range is sometimes just an opinion. I had high heart rate with Graves and then after RAI and being left hypo for too many years, I had a high heart rate with that too.You need Free T3 & Free T4 test and antibodies tests. Good Luck, IWL

Doctor suspects Grave's disease for me to, but I think it is subacute thyroiditis. I had a sore throat and severe cold symptoms and went to doctor thinking I had strep. She said my throat looked okay, but that my thyroid and glands were swollen and my pulse was fast.
T4 test 8/14 showed 23.6 and T4 test 9/1 showed 18. I think it is good sign it came down, although it is still high. Getting another test in 2 weeks. My throat hurt off and on for weeks. 3 different doctors said my throat looked okay, but something in my neck / throat hurt. I am wondering if it was inflammation of my thyroid and they could not see that by looking in my throat?
