Hi everyone and a happy new year to you all!
I was diagnosed with over active thyroid in nov/dec 2011 and put on carbimazole.
By the april/may 2012 I went under active so doc put me on levo also (block and replace?) Was on 20g carb x
2 a day.
Seemed to be ok according to levels so doc has started reducing down the carbimazole from aug/sept 2013. From then went on 20g a day( 2 x 10g). Seemed to be ok for that time.
Oct/nov 2013 went down to 10g per day (2 x 5g) . Some days ok some days crap.
Since mid dec I am now on 1 x 5g per day and I can honestly say I feel crap most of the time. My joints especially my finger/thumb joints are really painful. It seems to affect my other joints too but not as bad.
Due to have a blood test next week to see how things are?
Any advice would be very welcome as I really am feeling very down and yuck at the moment.
Would the reduction affect my joints like this?
I wish you all a happy new year
