Who has decided to find out what the underlying issue of their Graves is stemming from? I hate that I am resorting to Methimazole! Being healthy most of my life and having Shingles and thyroid issues pop up (well so I believe). I want to have some further blood tests done before considering RAI or surgery. There has to be something! Anyone else curious?
I was told that ive always had Graves but childbirth 7 months ago has triggered it

Hyperthyroidism or overactive thyroid results in increased production of thyroid hormones from the thyroid gland. It can be primary or secondary and presents with signs of accelerated metabolism such as weight loss and tachycardia. Decreased tolerance to heat and irritability are also common. Radioactive iodine administration and medication to control heartbeat are recommended.
