I have found this discussion board to be both supportive and informative over the last few months.
I had my RAI for hyperthyroidism on Monday and felt tired but fine until Wednesday night when the symptoms really started to kick in. Now its day 5 and I have an incredibly sore neck, gums, teeth etc... Today I fell worse than yesterday and the swelling in my neck is worse.
Can you advise me how long I am likely to feel this unwell? When will the swelling and pain start to go? I know everybody is different and reacts to the RAI individually, but I'd appreciate hearing your experiences. Much of the reading material I have found suggests that there is only slight discomfort after the RAI, but I have quite a high pain tolerance, and I am struggling...
Many thanks in advance for your thoughts
