Hi! Since having my thyroxine raised from 75mcg to 100mcg approximately a month ago i have been subject to restless legs at night while in bed which is very uncomfortable and sometimes painful. As a result I am getting very little sleep at night. When I get up and walk around it eases and I don't get it during the day. I have also had an increase in joint/muscle pain in arms and shoulders. Could this be a reaction to the increase in thyroxine? If so, will it subside in time or should i take a visit to my doctor?
