Hypo-Face Swelling

I think something went terribly wrong with my last post as a lot of my words were repeated a million times... think there's was something wrong with my laptop!! So sorry.

So to make this really short:

I have Graves Disease- diagnosed in 2013- slight thyroid eye disease in my left eye- not noticeable to the naked eye. non active state and my measurements have remained the same on my eyes.

Did the RAI treatment in Jan 2015 in which I still didnt have any eye symptoms- hadn't changed and didnt get on Armour until April 29th 2015. 60mg

In the meantime my last blood work in April was:
T3 Free 1.4 range 2.0-4.4
T4 Free 0.29 range 0.82-1.77
T4 Total 1.4 range 4.5-12.0
TSH 42.310 range 0.450-4.500

I have severe upper eye swelling, cheeks, fingers, toes, and stomach. the worse is the blurred vision.

Where should I try to get my levels? Or is that totally up to have I feel!!

When will this start to go away? At what levels?

Anyone that has experienced this- did your eyes go back to normal completely?

Did the blurred vision stop?

What would be the next dose increase?

Sometimes things  don't post as we have them typed, which is what happened with your other thread... it's okay, we get the idea and because it's confusing when you have 2 threads going with the same information in them, I've reported this one as a duplicate, so hopefully, everyone will simply post on the other thread, not this one.

Here's a link to the other thread:
