Re: Sudden thyroid swelling...droopy swollen eyelids!
I've noticed that my eyelids are a lot more swollen than they used to be when I wake up in the morning. They go down a little while after I'm up and around, but I never used to have that.
shellshocked, you mentioned the blurry vision. I totally know what you're talking about. My biggest complaint throughout this whole thyroid thing has been my cognitive processes (memory, processing, recall, derealization, etc.), but I have definitely noticed that when those things get worse, my vision and acuity get worse along with it. It has to be related to fluctuations in thyroid. When I tell doctors this, they just kind of ignore it because you can tell that they don't know what would cause it. Did your optometrist give an explanation for why the thyroid would cause these fluctuations in visual acuity? When I'm feeling good, my vision is very good (I don't wear glasses or anything; I had LASIK years ago). However, a few hours later, I can feel like I need to go get glasses. Hopefully this symptom will get better along with everything else!
