I am 37 years old and about 2 years ago a friend at work recommend me to have my thyroid checked due to me being tired all the time, not sleeping and having days off work often than I would!!
I had the blood test and it turned out that I had under active thyroid and my GP started me on Levothyroxine 75mg. She did not explain why, and what could caused this neither did she explain what test I should have regularly. Matter of fact she did not explain nothing!!
I mean if a patient has been diagnosed with a new condition surly she should its common practice but no she dished out the tablets and sent me off!!
This year in April I had a migraine at work and my pain started from there with my right eye and still continues today. Painful eyeball, double vision, blurred vision, muscles behide my eye are large compare to the other eye, cant really look left or right with this eye so very limited eye movement.
Since then I have been to eye casualty 10 times and each time the doctors dilates my eye but could not see any thing wrong with it. First I was diagnosed with co coma and then arthritis in my eye.
I was then referred to the eye clinic after visiting several times and seeing a different doctor I had enough I broke down and demanded I see someone same each time I come.
It took me 10 minutes to explain my story and explain my pain. Each doctor DID NOT read any of my notes. I had so many blood test I have lost count. Recently I had a full thyroids test which shows that I have autoimmune condition!!! This is where the white blood cells are affecting my eye. Hospital sent me away with Codeine tablets which makes me dowries. So have been reading on the net about this condition. Does any one have autoimmune condition if so will it improve or will it get worse? And anything else I need to know.
Anything advice would be helpful please.
