From this study (2 days ago):
Had radiation and surgery in neck area 22years ago
From this study (5 days ago):
At age 78, I know I must have some arthritis in most of my joints, but have had absolutely no pain until about a month after starting Levothyroxine. Changed to Synthroid and it didn't help. Joint is swollen and mishapen and is quite sore and achy. I am very careful not to bump it and try not to use that finger any more than I have to. I definitely feel that it was the Levo that started it all. I am also having a very difficult time losing weight on the meal plan that I usually lose on. Stomach and thigh areas seem larger.
