Gina, about the sinus infections. I had continuous sinus problems for about 3 years until I was treated for Graves’ and then they just disappeared. When I mentioned this to my doc he gave me one of those looks. I’ve also had a class 3 pap smear a few years ago at what I now know was the beginning of my Graves’. As far as my eyes, there seemed to be a direct correlation between the level of my thyroid and spots in front of my eyes. The higher I went, the more spots I saw. My doc seemed to think I had gone over the edge on that one. Maybe so. Julie B.
cARMEN- i AM ALSO HAVING TROUBLE FOCUSING. MY EYES ARE VERY SENSITIVE TO LIGHT. I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH GRAVES IN JAN.96 BUT I LOOKED BACK AT PHOTOS AND MY EYE BEGAN TO BULDGE IN NOV 95. I MUST SIGN OFF NOW BUT IF ANYONE HAS NOTICED A CONNECTION BETWEEN SINUS INFECTION AND THE BEGINING OF GRAVES LET ME KNOW . THANKS.
