Hello everyone, hoping you can help me as I have been fine on 50mg Levo (apart from Teva) since 2012 but gradually feeling v tired with a slump in the afternoon. Problems with tight feeling around my throat, sore tongue, headaches and joint pain around elbow and calves. Tests always done and Levo taken as advised by your wise guidance.
Asked for small increase in Levo, ie 25mg and I was going to split tablet, ie 62.5mg to try how I felt but Dr refused by saying I couldn't have an increase and gave me treatment for oral thrush which I still have. I should add my last test at the Docs a month before was TSH 2.5, sorry I cannot find the ranges at the moment.
