    Hello,

    I have the same exact symptoms especially muscle and joint pain in arms and legs keep me awake at night. I have been taking 2 Aleve pills at night to elevate the pain.

      Yes I just started back a few weeks ago but I noticed a difference when I take it on and empty stomach and then wait 3-4 hrs before I eat.

    You sound to me over medicated. I am having same symptoms and will be going for a blood test shortly. I have an under active thyroid but feel as though it's going the other way now.

    It is ok taking other meds if needed but I believe this just masks the root problem.

    I have had these problems for some time along with a feeling of my stomach feeling "on the go" all the time especially at night which keeps me awake. Also I had a kidney infection last April which I still say was thyroid connected. I lowered my Thyroxine and immediately felt better, I have lost a bit of weight, don't trip to the loo so often and sleep a bit better. I still think I need to lower it more but time will tell.

    Hope you soon feel better.

       Hi Tadger, sorry to hear that. You could try 150 on one day and 175 on the next. Alternate days suited me better than suddenly dropping a whole 25mg in one go.

      Let me know how you go, good luck.
