Travel graves: It is unclear how severe your graves was at diagnosis how long you have been on mess generally symptoms can be controlled with ned's in 6 weeks also it will be hot and make you uncomfortable due to hyper metabolic status also physical stress may be difficult to tolerate check with your physcian for advice.
