hello, i am new on here .... i have had an under active thyroid for 11 years now and my old doctor told me he had tried me on all combinations of medication to treat my condition , i started off on 25 mg but it kept going up by 25 mg each time until i have now reached 200 mg... the problem i am having is that my symptoms never seem to go away , my body aches from head to toe , my muscles constantly hurt and get cramps , i get sick a lot my joints hurt i suffer head aches on a daily bases i am always tired ... worst of all no one seems to understand !!! my home has become a real mess where i now live alone and its driving me crazy ( my mood swings don't help neither ) ... i have seen on here that a few people have managed to get it under control and feel back to normal .... my new doctor tells me i have to cut down working to at least 30 hours but i really can not afford to do this ..... so please can some one help me !!!!
