    If your thyroid levels are normal you are on a very high dose of meds. I'm on one 5mg tablet every other day now as I went hypothyroid and with your symptomatic it sounds like you are too. I'd get your meds double checked as soon as possible.

    Hi Margaret. I understand that selenium supplements will reduce the eye puffiness and Magnesium will reduce your fatigue. Magnesium glycinate is a form of magnesium that addresses deficiency symptoms well. Best wishes.

    Hi, I've had Graves for 6 years and am now Hypo following radio iodine.

    I've been eating 1 brazil nut daily to get a regular dose of selenium, I've been doing that for a while now & the morning puffiness has pretty much gone (unless I get a rubbish nights sleep). There are other foods that selenium is in, but in much lower doses. With a bit of research I found that my diet was almost certainly pretty lacking in selenium. I noticed a difference in 1 to 2 weeks.

    I do also have TED (thyroid eye disease)

    I started with swelling around the eye & a vision change that was very gradual. Have you had your eyes checked recently? 

    Just thought I'd mention TED in case it wasn't on your radar
