        It doesn’t seem that long ago I was posting a message on here telling you all that life does get better after a diagnosis of Graves…..and now I’m sick again. Been treated for the last six months for sinus problems,suppossed allergies,inner ear problems-had all these checked out…..and guess what? finally,after experiencing muscle weakness,tingling in fingers,lack of balance,fatigue, and being convinced I had a fatal illness, I had my thyroid levels tested. Yup, hypo. Now that I am on an increased level of synthyroid, the sinus problems have gone. Hopefully, the fatigue will be next to go.

          I was interested in reading in your post that you mentioned “lack of balance”. I was wondering if you could sort of describe this. After a long time, I am finally really feeling the effects of hypo and I notice this too. The only way I can sometimes describe it is that I am feeling guiddy. I am fine when I am sitting down but I find it when I am walking and standing. Sometimes my eyes feel more tired or sleepy than my body and my head just feels heavy. I am well aware of all the feelings of hyper and my doctor kept telling me that someday I am going to crash, but I don’t think that I was ever ready for this. I have noted that in talking to people who are hypo and in reading different articles, some people do complain of dizziness. The other interesting thing was sinus, etc. When I was euthryoid, I never had any stuffy and/or runny nose. However, when I became hyper I always had a runny nose. I remember telling both endo’s about this and they didn’t think anything of it. Then after RAI, I noticed that I used to get a stuffy nose. Now sometimes I get a combination of both. Sometimes people at work ask me if I have a cold or sometimes when I answer my phone at work people say, oh I didn’t recognize your voice. I guess sometimes I get a bit hoarse. Then there are times, when I am not congested at all. Weird or what? But having read so much about thyroid, I believe this is definetely all related to the disease. Oh well, my replacement hormone was increased and I have 4 weeks to go before blood work. Hopefully, some of these hypo feelings will start to revert back to normal, I hope….
