In brief: Depends

Depends upon your physiologic reserve and how active the grave's disease is.
Severe symptoms will usually drive patients to their doc before cardiovascular collapse ( thyroid storm). Young patients can tolerate a lot but if you have other underlying conditions you might not be so lucky.
