I was born with hypothyroidism and have been taking medication (Eltroxin in childhood and now Levothyroxine). i had a thyroidectomy due to a goitre 11 years ago. Apart from that I hadn't really had any problems until now.
In the past approx 6 years, since my periods became less frequent and finally stopped in 2014, I have had tight aching calves and soles of feet. I originally attributed it to menopause and have put up with it as i can't really take HRT due to other medication.
I saw a GP this week and suggested a connection to thyroid or Levothyroxine. The doctor was somewhat patronising. He dismissed my suggestion and told me off for reading health websites (even though I had referred to an NHS advisory page).
I'd like to hear from anyone who is similar age (52) and has had the same problem.
