13 Symptoms of Graves’ Disease

12 Skin

Some people with Graves’ disease may notice a reddish thickening of their skin, usually over the shin area. This is called Graves’ dermopathy or pretibial myxedema. This does not usually cause any pain in the affected area.

13 Muscle Weakness and Tiredness

Although this is a non-specific symptom that can be present in many other diseases, both lethargy and muscle weakness are also present in Graves’ disease.

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms without obvious causes then please see a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.
