    Hi Huni

    sorry to hear you have to be on this medication.

    I had treatment that involved carbomizole and even no doctor admits bit pain is because you are taking carbomizole.

    I had all joints in incredible pain for 2 months. Even my ribcage was painful. Couldn't sleep much cos of discomfort.

    At the beginning your body goes into a shock and than will get used to it.

    What I can advise if you are drinking regularly any alcohol than stop. I noticed that even cheacky glass of wine every other day was causing a pain.

      Hi there, just joined too!

      I have been taking carbimazole for about 5 weeks now and I have very bad pain in the knees & lower back. My knews were always an issue but the pain is different - I have started taking fish oil - too early to see if it's working but worth trying...

      hope that helps! cheers!
