      Lynn: I had the sore sensation (not exactly burning, just what I considered a slight soreness) and the lumpish quality in my throat after RAI and while on PTU. I was warned about this by the docs though, so didn’t pay much attention, and it went away “fairly” quickly.

      Being sleep deprived is one of the worst aspects of Graves, IMHO. I was very thankful that I could just crash in the afternoon for a long nap, because when I got really tired (which was almost a constant thing), I found that my moods were more erratic and I just generally didn’t feel as good. I hope you can get a good night’s sleep soon. I’ve been sleeping better lately, and find it’s a lot easier to keep a positive attitude now. MOST days.

      As to your eyes, mine got incredibly puffy about the time I went hypothyroid. We’re talking tangerine-sized swelling here, that turned a lovely shade of mauve. Yuck. My endo said she suspected it was due to the hypo-ness, but I was panicked that it meant Graves eye disease was starting. Well, I’ve been on the synthroid now for three weeks (which is this approximate amount of time the endo told me it would take to “kick in”) and the swelling is going down. I don’t know if that’s what is going on with you, but I thought I’d pass along my experience here.

      Take care,
