Hi, I am 58 and been on thyroxine/levothyroxine for 35yrs. I was on 200mg for years, then a few yrs ago was reduced to 175mg. I have chronic cough, been told by a resparitory consultant caused by long term thyroxine, plus nerve damage in upper left leg and right foot, 3 toes, the podiatrist said the same, long term use of thyroxine. I keep asking if there is anything else I can try other than levothyroxine and keep being told no. I have only ever been seen by GP's for thyroid, and being in Scotland we cant get full thyroid test done. My last TSH came back at 0.05. GP said I am in "normal" range. I am very cold, cant get my temperature past 35.8. Joints really ache, constipated and feeling really tired all the time. Has anyone else's docs tried anything different.
