Dear all, I am currently suffering with what I think is carpel tunnel. I had this back in 2012 and now again. I don’t have sharp pain this time but do have numbness, tingling, crushing feelings in my fingers and thumbs and sometimes feelings in my arms. It wakes me at night a lot. I am on 125/150 mg (alternate) of Levo every day. Recently had my dose upped from 125 mg every day and about to do a blood test for tsh, iron, vit d and b12 through my GP. Now is there anything anyone has found that reduces this problem ie avoiding certain foods, exercise? I don’t eat gluten or dairy. Am on a mostly vegan diet. Take loads of supplements. Don’t have a chance to exercise that much and drink 1-2 cups of fresh coffee per day. My GP wants to look into a possible conversion problem as my TSH is viewed as being normal (it was around 2 the last time they checked). I asked for it to be kept around 0 so we agreed to up my dose. This however has not improved my carpel tunnel. Sorry for the essay!!
