From this study (5 days ago):
Aricept does not seem to help at all, complains of legs being tired and weak. Will try to wean off

I have tried several different anti-depressents which did not help. Also electrical stimulation. Pain, burning and all other symptoms continue.
Em on Jun, 23, 2014:
Many antidepressants do not work for many people with hypothyroidism, especially noted in those whose depression is probably a symptom of the hypothyroidism. Speak to your primary care provider, psychiatrist, and endocrinologist about getting vitamin D level checked, taking an MAOI, and taking a natural desiccated hormone (NDH) such as Nature-throid or Armour. Good luck! Many doctors (NPs, and PAs will only prescribe synthetics). If they will not consider an NDH, you need to find an endocrinologist who will.
From this study (1 month ago):
Began warafin sodium (coumodin) approximately one month ago after a diagnosis of DVT clots in my left leg (with some traveling to lungs). Within two or three days, noticed numbness and tingling in left foot. Since then seems to have stabilized to numb left heel and tingling on arch (bottom) of left foot.
