I was diagnosed hypo and have been on 100 levo for about 5 months. I went through some extreme side effects when first taking it but my body seemed to adjust. After having my first lot of bloods done after starting levo, my tsh had reduced from 20. to 5.4 but the doc said she would increase my dosage to 125 to help bring it down further and then do bloods again. I have been taking the increased dosage for only 3 days. Would I have side effects from the increase so soon? I have felt pretty rough the last couple of days.... Shooting pains under my skin around my body, nausea, headaches. Today I was really worried as I was having funny turns which included the nausea, a slight hot flush that would travel through my body and over my head, leaving me with a funny headache and slight wooziness and tingling in my left facial cheek and then a chill. These funny turns only last a few minutes but leave me feeling rotten and have continued throughout the day off and on and now through the night. I am in the uk and it is 4.55am. I haven't slept due to feeling this way.
Also since taking levo, I have developed pain in my breast bone and sometimes in my back, as though it is locked and needs cracking??
Any advice appreciated.
