how do i know if synthroid is bad for me

Ihave been diagnosed with hypothyrodism for almost 3 years now and synthroid is not doing any good for me. Lately, I've been experiencing alot of joint aches, heaches, and fevers. When I dont take my meds, I feel better, I will make an appointment to see an Endocrinologist, but what does anyone have to say about this.

Cool Re: how do i know if synthroid is bad for me

Hi saechaomw - welcome

If you've been taking Synthroid for 3 years & have begun to have symptoms again (or never really felt BETTER anyway) then something is *not* right with your dose. From my experience, Doctors will get you into normal range, think they are DONE while you are still complaining of symptoms.

When was the last time you had blood work done? Often patients don't feel right on straight T4 medicine regime. Time for you to visit the Doctor
