Don't know if I'm in the right area but, I have Graves disease and I had an allergic reaction to the anti-thyroid meds. My doctor gave me a choice between Radioactive Iodine and surgery. I chose surgery and they gave me an appointment for May 30. I'm sure it's not for the surgery yet just a pre screening or something. My question is: Is there any way to stop myself from shaking? I can't even hold a glass half full of water without spilling it everywhere. People look at me strangely in the store or anywhere in public when I'm standing still and my legs and hands keep shaking uncontrollably. A couple people even asked if I'm on drugs. It's really annoying and embarrassing.View Thread
