has anyone else experienced a sudden intolerance to levo or its additives? I've been on 100mg for last 10 yrs no problem for hypo. 6 mths ago things went a bit haywire with severe hyper symptoms, blood test confirmed hashis and dose up and down and I'm now trying to get the new dose stable.
Last year I was given Actavis (100/50s) and Mercury Pharma (25g) when told to take 75g but was convinced I was reacting to the MP as the ingredients are slightly different (includes acacia powder - have read about this elsewhere on the site). Have been taking only Actavis for a while now but i seem to be having a food intolerance type reaction to them
I'm gluten intolerant (have been GF for 5 yrs) and the reaction feels very similar. Levo first thing on empty stomach, no food or other supps for an hour. 3 to 4 hours after taking, my upper jaw starts to ache, sinus pain, headache, back of neck, sore shoulders arms etc, pain increases throughout the day. I'm very careful with what I eat, no dairy, min grain, no coffee, no processed foods and I've kept a diary of diet and symptoms. I started to react to wine a few months ago in the same way so had to exclude so am wondering if I am simply becoming more sensitive to everything.
I have not taken any levo today and lo and behold, no symptoms as yet. have spoken to my endo about this, she said take some in morning and some at night, I just woke up with a cracking headache and had to take the day off work! I know it can take some time for body to adjust to new dose (I'm trying to increase from 50-75) but this has been going on for weeks and is making my life miserable, especially as pain killers don't help (which is the same if I get glutened!'
has anyone else experienced anything similar or am I going crazy?!
Thanks in advance
