Have been on an increased dose of thyroxine 125 daily up from 100 daily since 1st January - after one week my joint pains disappeared and my sleep was improved - however the last couple of days the joint pains and insomnia have returned. Can anyone tell me if it is possible that I would need yet another increase or what. It's fantastic when you get a few weeks pain free and I cannot bear the thought of returning to how things were. My GP told me to have my bloods retested after 8 weeks - I assume that this is long enough for my increase in medication to be at its peak.
