Still hyper after RAI treatment

From: rnv2929 - 4 years 8 weeks ago

I had RAI treatment 4 weeks ago. My thyroid is more hyper now than it was before I got the treatment. Immediately after treatment I went back on my regular dose of methimazol and felt OK for about 2 weeks. Since then it has been awful. My resting heart rate is about 80 and spikes up to the high 90s or a 100 when I do simple tasks. I have also lost 12 lbs and can't sleep. My doctor does not seem too worried about it but I feel worse now than before the treatment. Does anyone else have an experience like this? Thanks
