So for the last 9 years or so I have taken my Levothyroxine in the morning, usually waiting 1hr before I consume any food/coffee etc. Just recently I have started drinking "Skinny Coffee" which has to be drank 20 minutes before your breakfast. Cut a long story short I am a working mum with 2 kids I don't have a spare hour to wait and then drink the coffee and then wait 20 mins to have my breakfast so I started taking my meds at night before bed. Only problem is I feel as if I am putting weight on (even though the scales are not too mean) and I have a lot of muscle weakness. I go to the gym 3+ times a week and before I started taking meds at night I had no problems but since taking them at night I have started with shin splints etc and numbness in pains in my wrist and fingers. My Dr's are a waste of time and I don't have the money to pay private. I am still trying to get them to up my dose but they refuse to do so saying I am in the "normal range".
Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
