      Last January was when I began to notice subtle changes in my vision.
      First I couldn’t make out the time on the vcr and had minor problems
      with reading and (of all things) filing my nails! But the changes
      didn’t seem to be anything that I wouldn’t associate with needing a
      new prescription for glasses. Tearing and swelling began shortly
      thereafter and I just thought it was due to a strain on the eyes.
      It wasn’t until July that I was finally diagnosed with Graves.
      Since I had been hypo for close to ten years I never suspected the
      problem could be related to my thyroid – in fact, I was told that
      the tearing was probably due to allergies!

      Don’t want to alarm you, but I strongly suggest that you make that
      appointment first thing.

      Hope I’ve helped.
