I am on Synthroid now for almost 6 weeks.
Since I am new to this, looking for others experiences- I am on Synthroid now for almost 6 weeks. I started at 37.5mcg for a TSH in the 7s on one test and in the 5s on a repeat (to confirm hashimotos).. initially I felt better bc I have been feeling bad for a long time. Then the fatigue was worsening and hair loss etc. my doc doubled the dose last week- now I’m on 75mcg. I’m only 4 days into the new dose and last night I woke with severe ankle joint pain and finger joint pain. Then it went away all day and now it seems at rest to come back again and it’s migrating to different areas. My TSH before doubling my dose was 2.99— is it common to feel these pains while waiting for it to come down — I didn’t think my number was that bad and I feel horrible. Today I could have slept all day. So much to learn
