Should I be worried? My face is very swollen today (everyone I see is telling me this). I just woke up and it was this way! Eyelids, cheeks everything is swolllen!!! Should I call my endo? I constantly fluctuate and my endo changes my synthroid every 3 months. I currently take 88mcg Synthroid and 23 mcg Cytomel in the afternoon. The past week I have felt horribly tired and I am having major vision problems. Any advice would be appreciated. I look hideously swollen and it scares me. :(
Thank you both! I do feel very HYPO right now. I do have hashimoto's and I have never experienced the facial swelling like this! I have had swelling around my eyes regularly but this is much more. I have heard about eliminating gluten but I have not done much research on this. I will check out the site you suggested. As long as the swelling im experiencing is not dangerous then I can try to deal with it as my next apt with the endo is May 15th.
