Mergirl-Seen your similar post over at the lyme forum, but I'll continue here.
I had something very similar, but being a guy, I dont count eyelashes LOL. The similar part was dandruff like skin flakes on my eyelids. It eventually got red, raw and slightly cracked. I think it was yeast or candida itself, my eyes burned too, and was hard to focus sometimes and lids were puffed up. I had systemic candida before per blood work antibodies, simple insurance covered test that average Drs dont know about
., was from Quest or LabCorp. If its in your blood, its everywhere. I used coconut oil on my eyelids, its antibacterial, maybe anti-yeast, does not burn. I was on diflucan a couple times, but used it every day for about
1-1/2 months each time, it goes into your blood..Like ABX, its hard on the liver , so I got liver alt/ast tested just like on ABX. Nystain does not go beyond the gut, kinda worthless. Avoided sweets and carbs to rid candida too. The eye thing lasted two months.
Thyroid- its commonly said that our T4 and T3 levels should beat the top third of each range- thats more for people on thyroid med. Not on med, I would say the half way point is sufficient. And its best for those on thy med to experiment a little, to find their limit (we are all a little different) as I did..now I know LOL.
The confusing part of your thyroid test is your TSH should be a little higher (hypo) with those mediocre T3 and T4 results. Your TSH is closer to hyper (weird), but its known that TSH is not a reliable test compared to the T's. Since your Thyroid is not terrible, and the fact that you have so many other issues from lyme per your lyme forum post, keeping an eye on the thyroid but not treating at this time would be best. If it gets more hypo in the future, then treat by thyroid med.
