I'm a 28yr old Hashimoto's sufferer and I take 125mcg levothyroxine per day. I was diagnosed in May this year.
Despite being on more meds I've been getting terrible aches and pains in my hips and ankles. I did have constipation but I've been eating prunes and so far it hasn't come back yet.
I had problems with the new dose before and moved it down to 100mcg for a few weeks so I thought it would be now ok for me to take them as normal but the headaches I got when I first took the 125mcg have come back and last night my brain felt as though it had turned to jelly from the pain. It was so bad I resorted to taking painkillers for it.
I really don't know what more to do about this. I've also been charting my BBT and today at one point it was 38.6C, which usually means a fever! Am I on too much levothyroxine?
Thanks for any help.
