I've posted here before and received much more thorough information than my GP gave me. I have since changed GP (she made some very indelicate comments about my chances of conceiving) and have a much better relationship with the new chap, but I'd still like people's opinions on my new situation.
I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and my TSH was 49 (fasted blood test), prescribed 25mg, then 50mg of Levo and on my first (fasted again) blood test since being medicated my TSH is now 7.6. I feel MUCH better in myself but I know there is still some way to go.
My GP increased my dose to 75mg and within two days I had slight joint aches. Over the last few days the aching has worsened and now I feel like not just my joints but my muscles are very achey too. I also feel more lethargic but nothing like I did before I was medicated.
My questions really are, where do I go from here? Could the dosage be wrong? Will the aching stop? Is it normal to experience this?
When I first started Levo I had some fairly strong emotional/angry side effects (GP said it was something to do with adrenaline?!?) but my physical aches and pains went away very quickly so I feel confused as to why this has happened. I now feel more hormonally level but ache and itch all over.
Does anyone have any experience of this?
