I have Hashimotos. My T4 is out of reference range, too high, but not by much, and I have been well all year on 125mcg Thyroxine.. Saw a different GP six weeks ago, who asked me to lower my Thyroxine, within two days original painful joints and muscles had returned, so I self medicated back to original dose. Have felt fine since, but at the weekend the painful joints and muscles came back with a vengance although my dosage hadn't altered. Have spent a lot of this week horizontal, but still have joint pains, Now I am wondering if I have Polymyalgia or something else
