In Topic: Eye Problems?

11 September 2014 - 02:36 PM

Hi Strawberry!  It's been awhile since we have heard from you.  I hope things are going well but for this eye problem.......

 

Do your eyes feel overly dry?  Do you have mouth dryness?  I ask because Sjogren's Syndrome is common with Celiac and it can cause vision problems and eye pain.  I have Sjogren's myself so thought I would start there.  I don't mean a little dryness......Sjogren's will give you extreme dryness.  Do you have more dental problems than usual?  That's another symptom of Sjogren's, as it applies to your mouth.

 

Things are actually going really well, otherwise!

 

My mouth and eyes don't feel *dry* really. And my mouth is fine, other than the occasional canker sore (which I cure with probiotics, and sensitive teeth.

 

How is your thyroid? Feeling hot, muscle fatigue? Wacky vision, muscles aching around eyes, were an indication that I was running hyper. Then I would run hypo and the vision issues would go away and hypo symptoms would emerge.

 

I've had my thyroid tested in the past, and it was always normal, altho' I couldn't tell you any more than that. I do have muscle fatigue but my general fatigue levels have gone way, way down since I got my diagnosis of dysthymia (chronic, low-grade depression) and have been treating that. I will have muscle fatigue and pain on occasion, however. It seems a little random. It used to be daily. 

 

I didn't know you could go back and forth between hyper- and hypothyroid. I should look into that.
