thyroid hormone and swelling ankles
Hi
I am a 45 yr. old women with hypothyroidism due to radio active iodine post graves disease.I have been on synthroid for 25 yrs.For the last few months my ankles have been swelling.I have recieved all kinds of vascular studies and they have all turned up negitive.My recent dose of synthroid has needed to be adjusted.I am now taking 200 mcg of synthroid with the addition of cymotel 5 mcg taken twice daily because my free t3 was at the upper limits of normal.I have heard that ankle swelling has been a problem with low thyroid but I have had this swelling with blood tests that are in the hyper and hypo range.Can this swelling be thyroid related even if I am not underplaced on the meds?Any advice or information you could offer would be greatly appreciated.
