I was diagnosed Hypothyroid about 6 years ago and currently takes 125mg of Thyroxine daily, I'm 43. For the last couple of years I've had problems with my tendons, 6 weeks ago after struggling for 2 years I had an operation on my shoulder to decompress the area around my supraspinatus tendon and mend a partial thickness tear. I also have a trigger finger which means my finger gets stuck in any position which isn't straight due to the tendon swelling and not moving smoothly. I'm not convinced I'm on the right levels of Thyroxine and my question is if I ask my GP for an increased in dose will this help my tendon swelling go down? My other issues are tiredness, dry skin, terrible nails, poor concentration which are things I'd also like to address as they haven't really improved since I've been taking the tablets. Thanks in advance.
