My daughter in law received radiation to kill her thyroid.

Customer Question

My daughter in law received radiation to kill her thyroid. She has been diagnosed with Graves disease. This was about 2 months ago. Now she is having seizures and lost use of her left side. The hospital said they could not find a cause for this, and plan on sending her home. She is still paralyzed on her left side and cannot take care of herself. Do you have any ideas or suggestions that might help? We are desperate. This is the third hoapital she has been in and still no diagnosis.

We can not diagnose on line, for obvious reasons.
Did she have an MRI of the brain, an EEG and did she see a neurologist?
