I was diagnosed with Grave Disease a few months ago. What triggered it for me was that I started developing double vision which has since blossomed in to full Graves Eye Disease. I am currently wearing an eye patch because it is so bad. I am assuming that I am in the "hot phase". I also have fatigue and sweating due to hyperthyroidism. My endo had me do the RAI pill. All my symptoms including TSH and FT4 got worse after the Radio Iodine. I am now reading that things could get worse before they get better after getting RAI which they have especially with my eyes. I wish the doctor had told me that! Because the symptoms and tests got worse the doctor put me on 20 mg/day methimazole and 20mg/day prednisone. It has been a couple of weeks and blood tests/symptoms are not better.I am currently wearing an eye patch to relieve the double vision. I am wondering if my dose is to low and how long before things get better???? " any other advice would be great!
