    Yes, sore boobs. Horrible.

    Try ThyroGold. Its available online without a prescription. You have to figure out the dosing. Not covered by insurance. This is the closest I've found to natural human.

    You can also use supplements, diet and exercise. I've found essential amino a ids to be super helpful.

    Read though the many posts here. There are tons on diet fir thyroid.

    Hi. Do you know it is the drug which us causing that? It is just that I have auto immune disease and suffered the same thing for years. In the end not even convinced it was that which caused it. Now through or menopause and it has gone. They told me at breast clinic it would go after mu period stopped and it did. Was very painful and uncomfortable. But maybe you have been told it is the drug causing it? Not listed on side effects though does seem to have others. I sympathise because I know how painful it can be x

      Margaret, the synthetic levothyroxin causes lupus, fibromialgya and other autoimmune disease. These side effects used to be listed on the drug information sheet, but I've noticed the online manufacturer's sites no longer list these and many other (previously known) side effects.

      I can only guess that the disclosure laws have changed.

      Sorry last reply meant for Catharine and see you have suggested alternatives. Interesting to me because my sister has a thyroid problem. Not sure what she has been prescribed but she was recently diagnosed with sicca syndrome. Must ask what she takes for her thyroid problem. Elsie, do update and leg us know if you change meds and if it helps. X

    That is just awful isn't it. That should be against the law really. I have an illness similar to Lupus. Wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. Sometimes the treatments are as problematic as the illnesses themselves. Are there good alternatives to try? With less side effects?

      Margaret, I've tried every supplement possible. With thyroid disease, you get stomach problems that lead to malabsorption and malnutrition. So you have to take good quality multivitamins and minerals.

      Of everything I've tried, essential amino acid supplements have been the most helpful. liquid chlorophyll helps for energy. I've gone all natural because the cause of thyroid disease is toxicity.

      I was extremely damaged by the meds. so its a slow comeback. I've given up on the dysfunction and harmful medical system I'm dealing with.
