I’ve been taking levothyroxine daily since my full thyroidectomy in 2009. I’ve developed itchy sores on my lower legs over the past few years. Could it be a side effect of the meds?

    1974 for me. I have not experienced sores. Itchy, yes, though random areas. I do experience very low , brain stem headaches especially if I miss a dose and dry mouth daily.

    I’ve been on that med for 40 years. I am 63. I have no probs with the med at all. At one point in my life I did have it hey sores on my ankles and shins. Turns out it was the body soap I used.

    Yes I’ve experienced itchy sores on my legs but it eventually went away! I’ve been taking Levothyroxine 20 years now.
