As some of you may remember, I had my thyroid removed 3 months ago. My life has massively improved since being thyroidless but I can't get my medication right. I was initially put on 150 mcg Levothyroxine and felt really well. Unfortunately after a few weeks, I started experiencing severe foot ache and lower back ache. I was however full of energy and in very good mood. I had a blood test that showed I was deficient in Vit D, so was put on a big dose of Vit D. I also reduced my Levo to 125 mcg, thinking maybe it was the Levo causing the foot ache. The foot ache and backache disappeared after a few days, so I put it to Vit D deficiency. After a few weeks of being on 125mcg Levo, I started feeling down in mood and very lethargic. So, I thought up the Levo again to 150mcg. A few days later, my foot ache started again (same foot, right one). So, I'm attributing the foot ache to the increase of Levo rather than Vit D deficiency. I just don't know what else to do. I think I need a higher dose of Levo, but the side effects is not tolerable. My GP is due to call me next Tuesday. I'd like to hear if you have any advice. My blood test showed all tests within ranges. Do you think a bit of T3 will help? I doubt my GP would prescribe T3 but I'll try.
