Hello - please can anyone help. I have been extremely tired and developed pains since April 2013. Blood test at time was "borderline hypo" - high TSH, normal T4. No follow up. I presented in a state to GP in October and had thyroid re-tested. Came back borderline again - TSH dropped this time but so had T4.
My Mum is hypothyroid and due to my extreme tiredness started 50mcg Levothyroxine 3 weeks ago. Within days I felt reborn - all debilitating fatigue was gone.
But shoulder pains I have been having over last 3 months are getting worse. Also pains in feet still present.
Will these pains go as the weeks pass as I take my daily thyroxine?
Or is it possible that I will need a higher dosage?
Next bloods will be done next month.
Also should I not take a thyroxine tablet that day to get a more accurate test result?
In the meantime I am waiting to see a Rheumatologist to see if I have Fibromyalgia. From what I've read I'm convinced all issues relate to my thyroid.
I am not depressed, highly motivated and since taking Levothyroxine, I did try exercising at a normal level following no longer suffering that horrible fatigue. After 10 days of jogging every other day though, my body just totally rebelled BUT that extreme tiredness has not come back thank goodness.
Have I pushed too much too soon after being ill for months? Pains in feet and shoulder is definitely not exercise related.
Any thoughts would be most appreciated.
