Head Tingling And Feet Swelling?

After nearly 5 years of trying to get docs to take my complaints seriously, I was finally diagnosed with Hashimoto's a couple of months ago. About 3 months prior to that, they started me on Synthroid. At follow-up, my TSH levels had not improved so I was switched to Levoxyl. A couple weeks after starting it, I began experiencing tingling across my forehead and scalp. A pins and needles sort of feeling. Several weeks later the tingling is ongoing, though it waxes and wanes in severity. Then a couple weeks ago my feet started to swell. I was noticing my shoes felt tight and was getting sores on my toes from rubbing. I made no changes to my daily routine or diet that would explain this swelling. My ankles don't really look swollen-just my feet and it's gotten quite uncomfortable.Are these possible side effects of Levoxyl? It's Friday evening so I'll have to wait until Monday to call my doctor.

Yes, those can be side effects of this medication, though they are not common ones, according to the FDA. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, and hair loss.

Has there been any change? Are you on any other medications?

Have you informed your doctor of the swelling, to be safe?
