Bgorda (2 years ago):

I think you might want to look at whatever condition causes you to be taking levothyroxine in the first place. The endocrine system directly impacts circulation and muscular health. If there is a break down in one of these somewhere - its probably more the condition instead of the levo.. I just developed them a year ago - but have been on levo and its vaariants for 11 yrs. Now that I know the levo/syn was NOT helping my autoimmune problem but merely throwing in t4 that my system could not process and use as long as the "automimmune attack" on another portion of the body was going full force. So....i realize it was the poor care/lack of correct treatment that left my thyroid out of whack for so long and helped the varicosities to develop. (in addition to many other mental drugs given in the last 3 yrs to shut up my complaining of poor care)
