Brief Answer: No such side effect known. Detailed Answer: Dear XXXXXXX hi! no such side effect known from thyroxine. what are your recent reports? under dosing might cause swelling in knees. secondly low vitamin D and vitamin b12 can also cause this. get them checked. low proteins can also be the cause. night duties will not affect thyroid balance but yes you must take tab after 8 hrs fasting overnight and observe another 30 min fast after the tab. Regards!
