    In terms of grave disease, there are many potential symptoms, such as weight loss, profuse sweating, muscle degeneration, and muscle weakness. And some of the symptoms can affect the heart, eyes and other vital organs. What is worse, other symptoms include shortness of breath and diarrhea. Symptoms of graves disease can also manifest in the eye. Patients in this situation have to suffer from bulging eyeballs or eyelids that seemed pulled back.
