First - Hello guys. This place looks very helpful and nice and I'm glad I found it.
Let me tell my story:
3 months ago I was diagnosed with Hashimoto (yay). I'm 38, male.
My thyroid gland looks healthy and my TSH was 6.2.
My doctor prescribed me 50mg of Levothyroxine.
Almost immediately after taking the first dose (well, next day etc) I started to feel worse. My legs got stiff and my stamina was like: 20 minutes standing tops, 1km walk tops. Then I needed to sit or lay down or I will fall.
My doctor advised me to start taking another Levothyroxine brand. From another country. She said that I'm probably getting a bad reaction to the fillers or the way Levo was produced. I needed to clear my body from the old Levo to start the test.
I'm 8 days OFF any Levo and I'm still stiff and tired == the side effects are still here.
Is this normal? How long?
Thank you for your time and help!
