Welcome to Thyroid HUG!
All too often Graves' Disease sneaks up very quietly. The hyperthyroid symptoms slowly become worse over time as the thyroid wreaks havoc on the mind, body and soul. Isolation soon becomes our constant companion. After the thyroid is treated and the levels are within optimal range, a person then takes the journey of healing. It often takes a lot of patience to allow the body heal and adjust back normal levels - how long depends on your personal journey with Graves' Disease.
