I have had hypothyroidism for over 20 years, I am on 175mcg of Levothyroxin. I was diagnosed along with Hyperprolactinemia after not having a period for over a year. I don't take any meds for the hyperprolactinemia now, but, have trusted I have been given the right medical care. I have only been on levothyroxine for the last 4 years, prior to this it was thyroxine, no idea if this was the brand or what. After a random chat with a colleague I received a link to 'Stop the thyroid madness' website and couldn't believe that I have been mis-informed for so long. I could tick off nearly every 'symptom' on the list, to be honest I think I have lived with symptoms for so long I don't know what 'normal' is anymore. I have read through some posts and think, that's me...I'm going to make an appt with my doctor armed with evidence from the website. I have been getting aches in my joints and some days, like today, I get severe pain in my legs/arms all, it seems, attributed to hypothyroidism. I can't remember the last time I was 'checked' to make sure my dose was right..I would be interested in knowing if anyone has had any luck with NDT prescriptions, either through their doctor or online themselves..because right now this seems to be my only choice!!! Can't believe I have been so daft and not checked this out sooner...
