I had dry eyes and pressure in my eyes, but I have graves. The feeling of something in your throat is normal with thyriod problems ... you probably have a nodule.I would tell your Dr. all the issues you are having.
And i agreee it is FREEZING IN VA!!!!
Inflammation of the eye tissues. The eyes are painful, red and watery - particularly in sunshine or wind. The covering of the eye is inflamed and swollen.
The lids and tissues around the eyes are swollen with fluid. The eyeballs bulge out of their sockets. Because of eye muscle movement, the eyes are unable to move normally and there may be blurred or double vision.
One characteristic symptom is a protrusion of the eye (exophthalmoses), in which the person appears to be staring or the eyelids tend to pull back from the eye. The tissues and muscles around the eye appear swollen, and this swelling (or edema) contributes to the eye protruding. In this state the eye can become dangerously dry, resulting in damage to or ulceration of the cornea, the clear outer covering of the eye. The person may also experience double vision. In severe cases, the optic nerve connecting the eye to the brain may become damaged, leading to blindness.
If you are currently hyperthyroid, the slightly larger-looking eyes might be due to excessive levels of thyroid hormone. High levels can cause the muscles of the upper eyelid to pull back, tighten/retract. Once normal levels of hormone are managed again this retraction often goes away. Mine did not!
Your throat, jaw, ear issue might be problematic nodule and you should have it checked out to make sure its not cancerous.
