Ointments: With hypothyroidism, your metabolism slows and your mucous can be dry and thickened which frequently blocks the ostia of your sinuses. These small openings connect to the atmosphere. Blocking them raises the pressure in your sinuses and gives you that feeling behind your eyes.

Symptoms and disease: Hi. There is no symptom specific for a disease, and no disease specific to a symptom. Are tour thyroid tests normal on your thyroid hormone replacement dose?

Make sure your labs are normal and take your thyroid hormone as directed. ...Read more
