synthroid & fibro

Anyone experience fibromyalgia symptoms while on synthroid. I take synthroid to shut down my otherwise normal functioning thyroid gland. I had nodules so no thyroid function causes them to shrink???? I understand the rational. Anyway seems like my legs hurt all the time. Wonder if there might be a connection. Any advice or similiar experiences would be so appreciated. Also I can't seem to sleep more than 5-6 hours. My tsh is very low-which the doc says is the desired outcome. I am new to all of this. Help. New to this laptop also. Excuse the spelling and other errors.

Re: synthroid & fibro

Hi, they problem lies in your doctor only checking your TSH. This is just a pituitary response and is not the actual thyroid hormones circulating in your bloodstream. You need a Ft3 and Ft4 tests, because these show the actual circulating thyroid hormones.
