In reply to what??? graves disease?, posted by Spriggy on March 25, 2005, at 12:06:49

From what I have read, hyperthyroidism symptoms include intolerance to changes in temperature, gastrointestinal distress, muscle weakness, tremor, extreme impatience, nervousness, mental disturbances, and insomnia.

As I understand it, when hyperthyroidism also includes symptoms of eye protrusion (bulging eyes), visual disturbances and goiter, it is considered Graves disease.

Your doctor should be doing a full thyroid panel (not just TSH test) to get an accurate picture of thyroid function.
