I know I have posted about eye disease before, but I am still struggling with red, itchy, irritated eyes! People ask me on a daily basis if I got enough sleep... even if I did, my eyes are STILL red! They never used to be like this prior to Graves. I have had Graves since I was 19 years old (I'm now 24, so it's been 5 years) and my eyes have remained stable throughout my disease. My eye doctor says that I should wait until my Graves is under control and then we can move my eyelids down, since they are so retracted and one is more retracted than the other. He said once my levels are under control, I should still probably wait a year before operating. I've had 2 RAI treatments and I'm STILL hyper, so I don't know if that's going to be happening anytime soon, but I'm taking 40 mg of Methamizole a day to really try to get my thyroid to budge downward. It's so frustrating because on top of everything, I have gained 50 lbs throughout the course of my disease and I just want to feel better! Does anyone have any advice on what I should do about my eye issues? Sorry for the rant....I'm so thankful for this forum! Thanks in advance!

I was just diagnosed at the end of April. I started medication and was feeling great. Then I went for a check in and my doctor lowered my meds ( methinizole & propanolol). The past month since then I have been extremely tired. Haven’t had energy to eat healthy, workout. I’ve been super depressed, moody, extremely sensitive. I just went for another check in and found out I gained 9lbs in 1...
Does anyone take this? My naturopath advised me to take it because my levels were so low. I was just wondering if this was for Graves or Hashimotos. I am not taking any medicine right now. I’m getting more blood work in 2 weeks.
