Graves disease is a common condition that is known to be one of the closest tied conditions to developing hyperthyroidism, and there are thousands of people who have been diagnosed with it already as well as thousands of people who might have the condition without being aware of it.
If you have Graves disease then you are likely to show symptoms such as unexplained weight gain or loss, changes in your mood pattern leaning towards feeling irritable, and increased heart rate (and subsequent chest pain as a result) as well as other bodily changes in the way your body reacts to stimuli like food in general.
Graves’s disease has no cure, but can be effectively managed in cooperation with a medical professional. If you suspect that you have it, see your doctor first for tests to properly diagnose it.
Here are 14 common symptoms you might experience if you have Graves disease, a common thyroid-related health condition.
Insomnia is a very common sleep-related disorder that is diagnosed in thousands of people every year. It stands alone as a condition that can lose people sleep for most of their life, but it can also sometimes be an indicator that you are battling another kind of condition that has insomnia as a symptom – and this is more likely if you can tie any other symptoms to your condition that aren’t direct insomnia.
If you’re struggling to sleep or feeling constantly fatigued where you were otherwise used to a normal sleeping routine, it’s likely that you have another condition that’s potentially triggering your symptoms.
Seeing sudden mood changes and issues with weight alongside the symptom of insomnia could make it more likely that it’s a potential diagnosis of Graves disease. There are also other things that might cause the same symptoms: See your doctor to be sure what condition is causing your symptoms before any attempts to manage your symptoms.
