Hi, My name is Lynn and I am new to the health unlocked thyroid site.
I was diagnosed with problems (underactive) with my thyroid in my 30's, so have been on Thyroxine for almost 30 years. I have been on 125mcg now for many years, which has been ok(ish), but have suffered from joint pain and weakness most of this time.
I recently visited the Doctors as I have felt tired, nails breaking etc and just not right , where they said blood tests were showing I was on the low side again. They have increased me to 150mcg almost 2 weeks ago, and instead of feeling better I feel hormonal, have gained 4lbs in weight (despite sticking to Slimming World) and generally run down.
Has anyone else had this or is it just me?
