Thyroid and Body Pain
Hi everyone – Wondering if anyone has any experience with chronic body pain and thyroid issues. The list of possible symptoms from being hypothyroid is overwhelming and to be honest, I’m often not sure if what I’m seeing online is a real list based on science or made up by someone trying to sell supplements.
We’ve finally got my medication to the point where I’m no longer hypothyroid, but I still have body aches all the time. It’s better some days and worse others. The last couple of days it’s been quite bad and even my skin hurts.
My doc just finished testing for a whole slew of other auto-immune issues including rheumatoid arthritis and celiac. Everything came back fine, so that doesn’t explain it. I’m wondering if this is really worth pursuing (given that we have a very high deductible and it’s about to roll over) or if it’s just one of the fun parts of being a thyroid patient and I need to just deal. Thanks in advance for any advice / experiences that can help.
