Is there anyway to treat Myxedema? I had Grave's disease and after being treated with Methimazole I developed hypothyroid and myexedema. Been off all prescribed meds for awhile. I was on dissicated thyroid for 5 months and recently weened myself off of that. Now I'm wondering when will all the fluid and mucin begin to dissolve so I can look normal again and return to my regular size. This process is waaaaay to slow.
