Hi all, I would be really grateful for your advice. The past few years I've been suffering with really painful joints which has steadily got worse. It's now keeping me awake at night I had some blood tests and was diagnosed with 'borderline' underactive thyroid. I started taking 50mg levothyroxine a week or so ago. how long does it take for the symptoms to subside? The pain is unbearable! It also seems a bit strange to me that I am borderline but I am showing such significant symptoms. Do the hormone levels fluctuate causing intermittent bouts of pain or could this be something else? All my other blood tests for arthritis etc were normal.
I have another blood test due in a couple of weeks and I feel I need to ask my Drs a lot more questions!
Any advice you have is gratefully received!
