      Yes, Barb, I also couldn’t look up. That’s why my doctor recommended
      the Botox injections. The lower eye muscles were constricted due to
      fluid/tissue build-up in them from the Graves’. He used the Botox
      to relax the lower muscles, so the upper eye muscles could stretch them
      back out. I suffered much worse double vision for about three months,
      and as the Botox wore off, my eye movement was much greater.

      I sure do know what you mean about not being able to look up. It really
      hurt! Driving was a nightmare–couldn’t look up to see the rear-view
      mirror. Talking to people standing up when I was sitting was impossible.
      I’m lucky to have a doctor who understands how this eye disease works.

      Good luck with your treatment.
