Have been taking Levothyroxine for about 10 years from age of 56ish. Started on 25mcgms but recently increased to 50mcgms. I generally feel great apart from really bad headaches most nights between 1am and 5am. This has been so for several years and I have been prescribed one of the Triptans which I take most nights. I didn't associate the headache with the Thyroxine until I changed dose recently and now the headaches are much worse. I have been referred to a Neurologist who just wants to throw more pills at me without finding a cause. I'm wondering now if it is the thyroid treatment all along which is causing my problem. I am 66 years old but go to the gym three times a week and consider myself reasonably fit. I weigh 14.5 stones and am 6ft tall.
Any advice would be much appreciated as I am at my wits end with the headaches.
