I have been on synthroid 137 dose for almost one week now and no difference at all. Very Very very depressed over this. My joints hurt so much going up the stairs. I fear i will just have to live with it

" Thanks so much for your support! It makes a difference.

PS. I can't fit into clothes except a few outfits I can't afford new clothes so I am eating well exercise and I am still busting out of my clothes.
Again, thank you for the thoughtful messages. Meg "

" mirandadawn:
