I'm 28 and have been diagnosed with Grave's for a year+. So far it hasn't affected my eyes, but I don't really know what I'm looking for regarding that. My doc always asks if "my eyes are okay" and I shrug and I say I guess so... I'm probably the most scared of eye issues than anything else regarding Graves. (I don't smoke, I don't know what else I can do or not do to help.) Anyway, how would I know if it is affecting my eyes? What are the first signs? I've been sick this week and I'm aching everywhere, including "tight, dry" eyes, so it's got me thinking about it. Plus, I worry that since I'm only 28, with so far to go with this disease, it'll probably start affecting my eyes at some point because that's just my luck. Sigh.

Hi Everyone, Had my second appt. with the endocrinologist, today. After 1 month, T3 & T4 are in normal range and the T.S.H. Has gone from .005 to .01 . Was told by the dr. Not to worry about the T.S.H. Because it will take a while for it to get better. Was happy to find out that my medication is being cut in half to 5mg. Of Methimazole, once a day. The doctor felt that since my T3 & T4 came down...
is it common for the pain to be back so soon, or is it just part of the healing process? I’ve been through many different types/doses of meds and a cyberknife procedure. I feel like the MVD Surgery was my last hope...
