Does anyone else suffer from thumping, painful legs with hypo? Not talking about restless legs. My legs feel as though they are burning and expanding - they're not. It's constant. On levo. If anyone can share would be grateful

    Yes !! And my hands.my doctor told me its the Synthroid that I was on 100 milligrams he took me off of it because my t's were out of range High very high I'm on nothing right now he took me off of my medication till my levels come back down and then he's going to put me on a different brand at a lower dosage probably 75. I hope this helps

    Are you referring to massive water retention and leg bloating? That happened to me. My guess is you're younger and probably not as susceptible to the bloating.

      No she is not bloating.. this leg pain she is taking about you can't sleep it hurts to walk it her calf muscles it's almost like restless legs syndrome on steroids... I think if my Dr didn't change my MEDS in Nov 2015 I would me in a wheelchair today. Before I had my Thyroid removed in 2013 I went to the gym 5 days a week by 2015 I couldn't leave the house😪
