Yes I was in thyroid storming in 2003 . I remember most of it and yes if you see my journal  Tittled I thought I was dying - I can relate.

Grave's causes many cases of hyper storming. and consider yourself as likely the put the correlation together. Most Doctors go right to a cardio Dx and ignore the thyroid being the culprit.

If you look at you Free T testing you listed you are totally out of whack with them.

I think with you levels your doctor may suggest to you RAI ablation. I don't see your situation being controlled with just medication - but I am not a doctor nor GOD to make that decision for you.
