I was diagnosed Hypo over a year ago and have been on 50 levo since then. A couple of people on here have commented on it being low and normally only a starter dose but until recently I have felt not too bad. I have, however, started to ache much more and to feel tired (about 6 - 8 weeks) and also have Plantar Fascilitis so on advice from here I have recently started Magnesium with B6 and changed to a better type of B12 - too recent to notice any difference. I am due a blood test tmrw (early)and have asked for everything people have suggested here (although the doctor says no point in having the Magnesium test). Hopefully that will show one way or the other what needs to be done. The thing I have noticed is that my 'symptoms' don't seem to present the same way as others. I ache upon waking but mostly this reduces after 10 minutes of moving about. This morning I spent 2 hours in the garden raking grass, wheeling the barrow with stuff and dragging branches around and felt fine. Fell asleep for an hour after lunch (well I am 57 and need it these days) and when I woke up I could have cried as I ached so much that I shuffled around like someone 30 years older. Again, after moving about for 20 minutes I am now just slightly achy - does this sound similar to other people or could this be something else entirely?
