I had a couple of blood test to check my thyroid function last year. My first one came back at 4.5 and my second one in October at 5.5. Having had a massive (3+ stones) weight gain since early summer, my GP agreed to put me on a trial dose of thyroxine (25 mg) in December.
Initially, I did feel much better and lost a couple of lbs in weight, something I had not done for months. However, my weight is going up again, I feel tired most of the time and I keep getting joint and muscle pains in both arms, hands and my feet. Don't really understand what is going on, but wondered if anyone else has felt like this or can offer any advice.
