"Isn't it odd though that he's just now having that symptom along with the other symptoms after he's been treated for so long?" No, maybe he's having a "flare".... anxiety can also cause that feeling.
Yes, thyroid storm is very scary, indeed, as well as dangerous. If you think there's a chance that could be happening, he needs to go to the ER.
Please clarify how much med he's taking. You first said he was started on 10 mg 4 times/day. Then you said the dose kept increasing and he's now on 40 mg/day. 10 mg times 4 "is" 40 mg.
He's going in today for more blood work. I'll have to find last months blood work results. His symptoms were much greater than just being hyper! Yes, his initial diagnosis was based on blood work. I understand that feeling like something's caught in the throat can be part of the disease. Isn't it odd though that he's just now having that symptom along with the other symptoms after he's been treated for so long? Since he started feeling yucky again and something's felt stuck in his throat his bulging eyes have gotten worse. I've been reading about thyroid storm....scary! He's also experiencing nausea.
What are the results of his latest blood tests? You should be getting copies of each report. Please post the latest results and be sure to include reference ranges, which vary lab to lab and have to come from his own report.
Have antibody tests been done to confirm Graves Disease or is the doctor assuming that because your husband is hyper, it's Graves?
Personally, I think he needs a different doctor. Many of us with thyroid conditions have had the feeling that something is stuck in the throat and it's hard to swallow. This is common when the thyroid swells or is inflamed.
Once you post your husband's thyroid related blood tests, we well be able to better assess the testing/treatment he's getting.
