RAI iodine radiation Grave's Disease
Can anyone share their experiences with RAI radioactive iodine? It's been a little less than a week for me and I'm having severe nausea/vertigo a few days after taking the pill. I assume this is dumping? "Sounds to me like you are doing what we call "dumping." All the excess thyroxine is making it's way out of your tissues. Very unpleasant. And sometimes scary. Thyrotoxicosis.
A very rare effect of radioiodine or surgical therapy, called thyroid storm, may occur within the first week after treatment. This can happen if there is a sudden release of a large amount of hormone from the thyroid gland."
