Re: Sharp, stinging pains in eye
You may have Graves eye disease. I have Graves and Hashimotos and Graves eye disease. My eyes are achy/painful most of the time. You may want to read about thyroid eye disease and see if it applies to you.
How often do you have eye pains? Everyday? How often throughout the day? You may want to seek a opthamologist that has experience with thyroid patients.
I know with me, my eyes mostly ache or are painful, but my eyes do not bulge or bug out. Sometimes I do go through periods of inflammation that last a couple of days where I experience extreme sensitivity to sunlight, watery, red, bloodshot, and my vision is slightly distorted.
The TSI antobodies which is a marker for Graves can sometime effect/attack the tissue arund the eye's in some people with thyroid problems.
