i was diagnosed hypo 7 weeks ago, tsh 26.5. Despite this i had no symptoms or problems only discovered my condition in a random blood test. Felt very healthy prior to diagnosis. Starting taking 25 levo, and within days had virtually lost the use of my hands, first the left hand became like a claw (trigger finger) and then my right hand. I have only 50% use of my hands and I am now waiting for an appointment to see the physio at the hospital. But now I have also started developing pains in the balls of my feet, and even my knees are aching. It seems beyond a coincidence that these symptoms have started only since being diagnosed, and taking medication. Has anyone else experienced anything similar - my doctor says he's not heard of it before and also referred me to an endo at the hospital. Due to the severity of my symptoms, I have stopped taking levo, and began taking supplements and changing my diet ( i have a degree in health science). I no longer feeling that I am living in a fog, my energy levels have returned but I still have the severe problems with hands, feet and knee. My personal osteopath will look at my problems when I have been off meds for 2 weeks. Only been off them 1 week so far. Am very interested to know how common joint problems are with levo. Many thanks
