After years of being on levothyroxine I am suddenly having what I think are bad side effects, e.g. thigh pain and gut pain/possibly gallbladder attacks (although I suspect that I could have lupus and/or Hughes Syndrome, which are possibilities that are yet to be fully investigated). I am on the same amount of levothyroxine (50mcg) as I was when I was almost 5 stone heavier than I am now. Can losing weight mean that you need less levothyroxine? My latest NHS blood test results show that my free T4 is about the same as it has always been since being on levo, i.e. mid range, but my TSH had gone down.
Thanks in advance for your experiences/thoughts.
