Please can I have advice on what to do now as l have eye pain. I have been trying NDT over past couple of months as had a lot of hypo symptoms and +ve for antibodies (more info in profile) Tests Feb 2017
TSH 2.25 0.27 - 4.20 mIU/L
T4 Total 93.9 64.5 - 142.0 nmol/L
Free T4 14.86 12 - 22 pmol/L
Free T3 4.62 3.1 - 6.8 pmol/L
Reverse T3* 16.0 10 - 24 ng/dL

Started off low and very gradual increase to 1 grain in am and half in afternoon. I've had no improvement in symptoms apart from temperature reaching 36° instead of 35.something. No increase in pulse rate. Still have swollen feet and ankles.
I have noticed some eye pain - aching in socket around the eyes - mild intermittent for a couple of weeks but it was bad and constant yesterday morning (I'd already taken NDT) so I didn't take afternoon dose. Eye pain settled today, although not gone. No other eye symptoms. It must be the NDT. It has scared me.
Do I stop it completely? Is there anything else I can try? I have no idea what to do now 😕
