Hi friends -
I have been suffering from increasing joint and muscle pain (5 mos. post TT), and am considering asking to switch from Synthroid to Tirosint. However, my research turns up joint and muscle pain with Tirosint, too. In fact, "arthralgia" (joint pain) etc, seems to be a side effect of replacement/suppression in general, from levothyroxine.
Still, I like that Tirosint is supposed to be absorbed better, since I'm celiac and always on the edge digestion wise. No dyes or fillers appeals to me, too.
Assuming there's no brand that will be better, could this be a low Free T3 problem, or do we just suck it up because it's inescapable with suppression? Still waiting for a doctor to test my Free T3 - they say they have to send it out to a far away lab, blah blah, and it never comes back... :(
Has anyone had improvement with muscle and joint pain with Cytomel? If so, I will ask for that, too.
