Levothyroxine and toxic neuropathy

I had a total thyroidectomy in Nov 2011 after being diagnosed with Graves' disease. Now of course I'm hypo. I was on Armour and was swapped to levothyroxine and developed severe toxic neuropathy in my thighs and some numbness in my feet. I've started back on the Armour (two weeks ago) and the neuropathy has started to abate a little. Has anyone else out there had this reaction to Synthroid (levothyroxine)?
