itchy knees

From: remo - 5 years 5 weeks ago

The skin on my knees is very itchy and I feel like scratching it all the time. I am being treated for hypothryroidism. 100 mcg per day. Does the itchy knees mean I am not taking enough thyroxine daily.

I'm not sure about your dosage however, my knees were itchy until my levels were back to normal. You would probably benefit from another blood test to check the tsh levels.

Thanks I`ll take another test of my tsh, but in your case were you taking too much or not enough thyroxine.

to be honest, I'm not sure if I was high or low. Probably high.
