I started to feel unwell over 3 years ago my first symptoms where 2 stone weightloss over a month and tachycardia after a few trips to A&E I was diagnosed with hashimoto thyroiditis.
At first the endo said watch and wait so sent me back to the gp with a guide as to start levothyroxine when my TSH reached 10 so i was put on 50mg my TSH crept up again to 11 so the thyroxine was upped again too 100.
My last bloods my TSH was 17 so now I am on 150mg thyroxine a day and prescribed amitriptylen for pain.
The ami I have been on around a year 30mg a night and the 150mg thyroxine about six months.
The trouble is I still feel crap my fingers and ankles are so painful all day everyday they are red and hot to the touch and swollen.
My question is should I feel better by now on 150mg?. Or could there be something else going on, I have had a few mild positive ANA test's. I have a horrid rumbly/ shaky feeling inside (even when unmedicated)
I'm at a loss I feel any symptom gets blamed on my thyroid I just want to feel well again.
