I'm on Synthroid for Hypothyroid. Before I went on the meds I had bad joint pain. It was a sign of hypothyroid. Maybe you need to be reasessed, check your bloodwork to see if your thyroid is working o.k. I get blood work done every 4 months to see if my thyroid is o.k. Hope this helps. smileyhappy

I have been on Synthroid .2 for many years and I just asked to me switched to Armour due to the bad side affects. My hair has been falling out at an extreme rate, bad depression, not tolerating cold or hot weather, fatigue, and horrid muscle and joint pain.
I really hope with the new medicine I feel better.
