I have just returned from a gp apt for blood results. I take 100 mcg levothyroxine daily and have been having leg pains and insomnia for about six months. My GP has advised me to reduce levothyroxine to 75 and 100 on alternative days as he says my tag was suppressed at 0.02 and should be within 0.35 and 4.7.
He also said I am borderline anaemic but not to concern myself with that FBC was 119 and should be 120 to 160. I asked if I should buy OTC supliments he said no need is that correct please ?
Am wondering if this is the cause of my leg pains. I have been putting it all down to the menapause symptoms which have been dreadfull hot flushes night sweats insomnia various pains in legs and wrists.
Would appreciate your input as you all seem much more knowledgeable then my GP.😂
