Hi all, I'm new on here having only just been prescribed Levothyroxine.
About 6 months ago I started to notice a tremble/tremor which was occasionally visible in my legs when standing but mainly I just felt shaky and weird 'inside'. Went backwards and forwards to the Dr who did numerous tests but drew a blank except for what he said was a borderline under-active thyroid and he did not prescribe anything at the time. He referred me to a neurologist who I am seeing next week.
While this was going on I developed groin pain and hip pain. Not thinking it was connected in any way, I was back at the Drs, more blood tests etc but this time was put on the Levothyroxine - 50mg with instructions to return for a blood test in 4 weeks. At no point was the word 'borderline' mentioned! So, to cut a long story short - I asked the Dr if the tremors and joint pain could be linked to being under-active and was adamantly told 'No'...... I am confused as some symptoms listed include joint pain? Though I understand the tremors are normally associated with over-active? I guess I was almost hoping that the under-active thyroid might account for all these health issues but in a way, I am still no further forward with tremors, joint pain and an under-active thyroid to boot! LOL
Anyone think the Dr could be wrong or is that fact that I am only considered 'borderline' enough to rule out any associated symptoms?
Btw, I also have terrible sleepless-ness perhaps getting 3 hours of proper sleep nightly.
Thanks all xx
