I have only been on the medication 10 days but have sore joints & pins & needles in both feet! Is this a common side effect?

    Yes. I didn't have pins and needless but very very painful joins. That lasted about 2-3mounths, when I mention this to my endocrinologist, he said that it's nothing to do with condition or its treatment. I was very annoyed and looked for answer on forums similar to this one. Carbomizole does this. Your body is under shook from this strong substance and this is haw if reacts-alarm you.

    If you are prepared to wait and safer till your body gets used to it will be worth it.

    I know you can't bear this any more and feel absolutely awfully but sometimes this is the best way.

    I have finished my treatment 5 mounts ago and so far so good my tests are all good.

    Good luck I hope you get better soon x

    I always get the name of it wrong-Carbimazole.

    I hope you will have successful recovery. X

    I had the same feeling. Could not even walk because of this and if I had to call for help it was with the help of the emergency pendant which I worn around the neck, by Alarmcare in Canada. But I guess this is absolutely normal and you will soon get well with the help of further medication!

    Thanks Julio. I have had such a lot of symptoms relating to sub clinical hyperthyroidism I am beginning to forget what it feels like to feel normal.
