Hi, I’ve just joined these forums via the app. Recently diagnosed with UAT and put on levothyroxine , I’ve suffered with chronic pain, depression anxiety etc for years and this year alone gained 3 stone 😢 I only found out because of my age and they did a hormone check. I’ve even been sectioned.. the symptoms are the same as what I’ve been going through for almost 20 years 😮. Thyroid problems never even crossed my mind. Some days I can’t even walk for the pain . I’m now seeing doctor and nurse every 4 weeks until the Levo is at maximum. Doctors said it won’t get better but I’m putting a lot of faith in these pills already..

Hello Christine, welcome to the forum.

How much levo are you taking, now? Do you always get copies of your results? If not, you really should. :)

I'm sure that things will improve, when you get on the right dose, but it can take some time. If you have a specific question, do ask. But, always give as much detail as possible - especially blood test results and ranges. :)
