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.
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.
