Your normal blood levels don’t necessarily have anything to do with the eye disease part of Graves. You could be experiencing more severe eye problems, I know I have one eye that moves around (from the graves’) and if I try to walk using just that one eye, I am a bit dizzy. (actually I have fallen down trying that!)
Get it checked out by the Ophthalmologist!!

Hi All, I seem to have developed something new. I’m going to my MD Thursday afternoon, so I was wondering if anyone could give me some info before hand. What’s been happening is that for the last few weeks I’ve been experiencing dizziness. My vision also has gotten fuzzy, almost like I’m watching a movie and the projector needs to be brought into focus. I never had the “bulging”eyes or double vision with my graves. The eye problems I’ve had up to this point have been swelling eye lids (they aren’t there anymore!) redness, itching, bags and dark circles underneath. So these dizzy spells are something new for me. I’ve been on this bb for only about a week, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything about dizzyness. (is that a real word?) I’ve been wondering if any of you have had this happen to you? It seems like there’s so many syptoms! I thought this was suppose to stop after RAI and synthroid doses. My blood levels are finally normal, so I’m thinking maybe this isn’t about graves. Hmmmmm any thoughts on this? Do you think this could be related to gd? Sorry for the long letter. I appreciate it! TrishAnonymousDecember 19, 1996 at 10:10 amPost count: 93172
I have dizzyness often and my eyes are always blurry I have glasses for work
and driving.I also have this yucky white stuff in my eyes that I am wipeing out
every couple of hours . My right eye is worse than my left in vision and bulging
I also noticed on the white of my eyes its lumpy you can see it clearly .My Eye Dr.
said the lumps on the whites of my eyes are scare tissue from the sun and to
wear sun glasses when ever I’m outside.My vision gets worse in my right eye
every time I go for a check up . The eye DR. see’s me 1 time a year My reg.
Dr. wrote him stating he wants my eyes checked every 3 to6 months.

Yes, I am dizzy all the time and have trouble seeing (focusing. Although, my eyes are not bulging out a lot. I have still been trying to wear
contacts but having problems with the them. You’re not alone.

at the extreme but thanks to all of you I won’t be surprised anymore. I love to hear everyone’s story, Dianne’s home page is the best!!!! KAte
