Talking Graves Disease/Hyperthyroid

Hi everybody, I've just recently been diagnosed with Graves disease/hyperthyroid. My doctor put me on Methimazole 5mg and take 3 tablets every morning. I must say everybody has me a little nervous with talk about weight gain, I'm already overweight and don't want to gain more. I'm trying to get rid of it, not add to it...lol When my doctor asked if I had rapid heart beat, night sweats and tremors, I honestly thought it was due to menopause or my blood sugar, but have since found out that was part of the symptoms. I have to have blood work every 6 weeks to check my levels and make sure it doesn't throw me into hypothyroid. Gotta say, I'm a little nervous about everything.
