Diagnosed with a thyroid issue a year ago. Prescribed Eltroxin. Improved overall muscle weakness.
Since, developed severe soreness in hands and feet. Physician / Specialists unable to diagnose.
I'm just starting to suspect a link to Eltroxin. I'm an analyst for the government. I'm going to test my theory.
I researched Eltroxin and 4 out of 1000 people tested on this medication developed peripheral neuropathy (soreness in hands and feet) .
Is this side affect more than the public is aware of?
Are doctors prescribing medication unknowingly making individuals more sick?
Why are so many people undiagnosed with pain and why is more and more diagnosed with fibromyalgia, polymyalgia, rheumatory arthritis, etc. etc...
Here's another thought, why are so many individuals being put on anti-depressants for just about everything.
I'm really concerned about the doctor - prescription model to treat everything.
I'm really concerned about some of the medications being prescribed.
I'm really concerned that physicians are unable to monitor properly with 15 minute appointments every few months.
