Hi. I'm new to the community, but have been taking Levothyroxine for about fifteen years. For nearly a year now I have been suffering acute pain in my arms and legs - and almost anywhere else in my body, together with 'brain fog' and anxiety. I have had MRI scans, physiotherapy, consultations with Rheumatologists, but they have found nothing. My GP has mentioned Fibromyalgia and this is when I found the link to thyroid online. My GP won't test for T3 and more or less says that I have to live with the pain. I'm at the end of my tether - it's affecting every aspect of my life, work, relationship and we may even lose our home.
I've read about Armour and similar, and am wondering whether to buy online (from abroad) and self-medicate to see if it will help.
What do others think about this. Good or bad idea? Or should I try to find a GP or specialist who will listen?
