I am 47 years old. I was diagnosed with hyperactive thyroid 15 years ago and I took Tapazol (methimazole) for one year and I was healed. At least, I thought I was healed...8 months ago I was diagnosed with this decease again. This time, much worse. It affected my eyes. Changed my face. I was very beautiful now I can't look at the mirror. My eyes are swallow on up and down my eyelid. My left eye is bigger than my right one and my eyes are bulging. There is a surgery that could fix it but I don't have money to fix it. I am taking Tapazol again and in the last two months I have experienced a huge hair loos, at the point that in two months I lost half of my hair. I am desperated. I don't want to be bald. It is enough what happened to my eyes. I lost my confidence. I am stressed about my hair and eyes. I am depressed and taking medicine to help me sleep. This decease destroy us inside and out. My appearance is changed. Is there someone that had the same symptoms that I have? Is there something I could do to stop this hair loss?
