Hypothyroid but thyroxine causes eye pain
Hi,

I have previously posted about thyroxine causing my eyelids to swell and puff up.  Well, now it is making one of my eyes feel like it has pressure behind it and is really quite painful.  My GP says to try drops in case I have episcleritis, but that if not then she thinks I might have a very mild case of what happens to people with Graves disease.  I understand this to be thyroid eye disease.  This is most odd as I am still in they hypo range and am only on a low dose levothyroxine (25mcg one day, 50mcg the next).  This dose (recently increased from just 25mcg) has definitely helped ease what was really quite bad joint pain, but I am really worried about my eyes.  Does anyone have any idea what can be done if it proves that the meds I need to control my hypothryoidism are causing eye disease? Please help!  Thanks in advance.
