Yes, some people suffer chest pain with Levo. Some have switched to Synthroid and gotten better results. I had chest pain before taking any thyroid meds. Now I'm on Synthroid, and the pain has eased significantly.
Some have gone the natural route and taken drugs like Armour and Nature Thyroid. I have thought about taking natural drugs, but because of the shortage, I am sticking to my Synthroid. You might be able to find a compounding pharmacy in your area that will make the natural thryoid hormones for you.
Just realize you have options. If you have an endo who will only prescribe one type of drug, then I would recommend you find one who works with you in finding the best treatment.
