Hello everyone and a happy new year to you all!
Diagnosed in nov/dec 2011 with over active thyroid put on carbimazole (20g twice a day)
By the april/may 2012 went under active so doc put me on levo as well (block and replace?)
However since aug/sept 2013 doc has been reducing carbimazole gradually as everything seems to be settling down. Went down to 20g (10g twice a day) for the period aug-sept. Seemed to be ok pretty much of the time. Oct/nov went on 10g (5g twice a day). Not too bad.
Since mid dec been on 5g just once a day. For the past week I have been feeling crap again though not as bad as the early days. My joints have been really painful (especially finger/thumb joints). Though my other joints have also not been very happy also.
Still on 75g levo also
Due to have a blood test next week to see how things are going, not sure I can wait that long.
Can anyone let me know if all the joint pain is as a result of the reduction of carbimazole?
I hope this all makes sense and I would appreciate any advice
