    Hi:  It could be a medication side effect or it could be a signal of reflux damage.  When I took Nexium, I had the feeling of a needle stuck in my somach.  You should raise the head of your bed 8". Or get an 8" wedge.  These 'minor' health issues can lead to major problems if left untreated.

      Thanks, I did find some side effects of levothyroxine.  Some are similar to what you described.  But, it does not mean you should stop taking it.

      Less common:

      Chest pain or discomfort

      decreased urine output

      difficult or labored breathing

      difficulty with swallowing

      dilated neck veins

      extreme fatigue


      fast, slow, irregular, pounding, or racing heartbeat or pulse


      heat intolerance

      hives or welts

      increased blood pressure

      increased pulse

      irregular breathing


      menstrual changes


      pain or discomfort in the arms, jaw, back, or neck

      shortness of breath

      skin itching, rash, or redness


      swelling of the eyes, face, lips, throat, or tongue

      tightness in the chest


      troubled breathing
