I've just returned from an eye test during which I mentioned that I've been referred to an endocrinologist who will carry out thyroid tests. The optician decided to do an ocular motility test. She found an anomaly and wants me to mention it to the endo.
However, an Internet search only links such a problem with Graves/hyperthyroidism, yet my symptoms are related to hypothyroidism (incidentally, as related in other posts, I've never had a formal diagnosis; recent tests ordered by my liver consultant have shown TSH and FT4 to be within range and the lab of this particular hospital refused to test FT3. However, the consultant was happy to refer me to an endo at another hospital and I know that the full range of thyroid tests are done there).
But I'm now very confused that I seem to have a symptom that suggests the opposite of hypothyroidism!
Could someone enlighten me please? Many thanks.
