Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Where is the pain and pressure located?
Is it only when you move your eyes?
Is your vision affected at all?
Do you have any medical problems or take any medication?
How long has this been going on for?
Hi. Welcome to chat. Are you there?
I am sure that you understand that you need to take your thyroid medicine every day for the rest of your life in the majority of cases......
OK. Thanks for that extra information.
The most common cause of pain around the eyes like you are currently experiencing is an issue with the sinus' . From what you have posted, I do not believe that you have an intrinsic issue with your eyes.
Also, just being off your thyroid meds for a week can cause all sorts of problems, including muscle aches/pains, lethargy etc.
So. What should you do? Make sure you are back on your thyroid meds, get your thyroid levels rechecked in the near future, sit down, relax and enjoy the Superbowl :-)
