Hi, Hypothyroidism itself causes  Muscle aches, tenderness and stiffness.
Pain, stiffness or swelling in your joints.
Thinning hair and hair fall.

Treatment with levothyroxine is usually lifelong, but because the dosage you need may change, your doctor is likely to check your TSH level every year...
