... mcg levothyroxine for 4 years. Should I be concerned about the cramps?
19 Feb 2012
Don't forget to take plenty of calcium. Processing calcium is the job of the parathyroid which can be affected. 1200 mg per day as a supplement is good per my doctor. When I forget I get cramps. too much potassium or magnesium causes other problems depending upon what you are on. See your Endo doc.
