Finally!!! Some good news from me!!
Well, my gp agreed to treat my thyroid, even though my levels were only on the low side of normal (whatever that is!!). I now take 0.025 mg of Synthroid a day.
I began to feel better the same evening that I started it - although today (day 3) I have puffiness above & below my eyes again, I still don't feel quite as much pressure around my eyes.
THE absolute best part of starting tx though has got to be not feeling like I have rubber bands around my throat any longer!!!!
