Not sure if I'm worrying over nothing but I'm going to ask anyway as this is bothering me. Have now been on 25 mcg Levo for 6 weeks, feel much better in terms of symptoms (although still got hot flushes). Also been supplementing B12 (5000 mcg), D3 (5000 i.u.), Folate (these 3 all deficient), Magnesium, etc for the past couple of months. Mentally the brain fog has gone, which is great! Also gluten-free for 3 months now.
However, I have noticed during the past week or so, some odd sensations in my feet/lower legs. From reading around this forum and elsewhere this would appear to be peripheral neuropathy - a feeling of numbness in the ends of my toes, tingling in lower legs, soles of feet, just a very odd feeling I can't quite describe. Almost like pins and needles but just before you get that, so sort of subtle.
What I want to ask is, could it be connected to taking Levo (and not just B12 deficiency)? Before I took Levo I had some of those feelings just in a few toe ends (barely noticeable) but not in my legs, now it's like it's spreading, and I find that particularly worrying, especially as I'm supplementing. I find it hard to accept it's simply B12 connected since it has escalated quickly in the past couple of weeks. Haven't yet seen my doc as I'm due another blood test in a couple of weeks to assess how I'm getting on with Levo.
Anyone else had this sort of reaction?
