I've been on Levothyroxine for 3 months. I have struggled with various side effects throughout. Eventually the doctor listened to me and reduced the dose from 100 to 50mg - which is what it said on the leaflet anyway! But Im still struggling. Symptoms include sleep issues - deprivation, waking early feeling unrefreshed, not right amount of REM sleep, constant pain in hand and toe joints, feeling hungry - even when eaten, occaisonal pain in the head (never usually have headaches), cramps.
I had the blood test recently and it was in the normal range on 50mg.
So what to do! Has anyone else suffered with these symptoms. Will they wear off. Are there alternatives? Or am I meant to put up with this? Thanks.
