Best of luck
After you've helped others to research their symptoms and self-diagnose, you won't need to become a doctor. If you do get into med school and pursue the medical profession, the first thing you're going to realize is the danger of DIY treatment.

Best of luck to you.

I think you may have more than one thing going on here. I have been on medication for an underactive thyroid for half my life. Red, sore and burning eyes is not a normal symptom of thyroid problems. You could have an eye infection or another eye problem.

As for the thyroid medicine, how fast have you been making these medicine changes? Thyroid hormones build slowly over time. You are not supposed to change doses quickly. You are supposed to take one dose and then wait several weeks and re-do the test. If the test indicates a change is needed, you increase slowly--You are not supposed to just double your dose. If you built up your dose over a shorter period of time, you could be putting yourself in danger. An overactive thyroid can be dangerous amd make you feel quite sick. You need to take things slowly.
