Graves disease: I presume you are taking medicine to control your thyroid or you have had the thyroid treated with radioactive iodine. I do not relate the symptoms you are expressing to Grave's disease. You must quickly arrange to see your doctor ASAP. If things are really that bad I would go the nearest Emergency room today and find out what is wrong. Hope all goes well.
