I was diagnose with the hypotheroidims in 2004 and since then I was on medication (eltroxine). I was doing my regular test of T3, T4 and TSH. My last test was done june 2010 and then I went to South Sudan to work for United Nations Mission. In April 2011 I started sweating a lot and I thought it is just the heat of the country, then came the chronic itching all over my whole body, and rapid increase in my weight. I had different symptoms that I couldn't understand and I thought may be I have to increase my dosage, but before that I went home to do another test. My family and friends notice that my right eye is poping out. When I received my test result my doctor take me off from eltroxine. To my doctors suprise, she told me my thyroid is too overactive. I was told I have graves disease.I was told to do the follow-up test which will be done on the 19 October 2011. Can someone please tell me how that happens, that the thyroid which was underactive change into graves disease, because I don't find it anywhere. And I am trying to understand.

 


Thank you...
