So when I opened this I was going to ask about your heart rate and when i finished I see that you said it is racing. I have graves and was always out of breath, heart racing and other hyperthyroid (and hypo-) issues. I started going to the gym a couple months before being diagnosed and I literally felt like crap after every workout. Now that Im on medication, its not so bad. My heart rate is down considerably and my breath is not as short as it used to be… I think it takes time to build back your lung capacity. Just continue to take your meds and do a little at a time and it will get better.
