Hi everybody, I’ve not posted here for ages and this isn’t totally MS-related but maybe somebody here is in a similar position.
I was treated with Lemtrada 2015-2016. It has to be said that overall it’s been a raging success. I’ve had three annual MRIs showing no progression and even some improvement. I am symptom-free
This is super-amazing and everything but I have been one of the 30-odd percent of people to develop a thyroid issue and oh man that sucks.
So, I developed Graves disease last summer and was massively overactive to the point where I needed like three months off work.
I initially had some success with the medication to bring my thyroid levels down and most people are able to sort themselves out this way. It’s not really working for me though.
I saw my endocrinologist last week and he recommended surgery as my levels were coming down so slowly.
As a Lemmie I’m used to picking the biggest, scariest option with the best chance of helping me out but still I’m a little freaked out.
