I could really do with your thoughts please.
I take 100 mcgs of levo and have been on that dose for the last 15 months and have felt very well. For the last month of so I have been suffering from leg pain, more specifically knee pain and very stiff tired legs. This morning I was woken by pain in my feet and ankles. This evening my legs feel tight and I worried I may have fluid on them. This morning whilst walking I also had twinges in my back. I haven't been doing anything out of the ordinary.
I've read that over medication can sometimes cause joint and muscle pain although we know that being hypo can cause this. Prior to the last month I have never suffered any such symptoms even before I was diagnosed. I don't have any other signs of being overmedicated.
I'm wondering if it would be worth me cutting back on my levo to 100 mcgs and 75 mcgs alternate days. I don't really want to do it because the final tweak to 100 mcgs daily finally got me back to being my normal self.
I haven't had a thyroid test since last November when my TSH was 0.57 and FT4 21, both near bottom and top of range respectively.
