I have a question about bone pain as it relates to thyroiditis. I had an acute attack of thyroiditis in December. That subsided. My blood tests were all within "normal" range. My symptoms were both hypo and hyper-thyroid. Now, I am still experiencing weight loss, tiredness, decreased concentration, irritability, mood swings. The most distressing, though, is the deep bone pain, especially in my pelvis, iliac, and legs. It gets to the point that I can hardly walk. I have an appointment with an endocrinologist, but not till June. Apparently, that's the earliest one they've got for me.

  • Hello, Sorry to know you are in pain. IF it comes and goes and is in different parts of your body it could be neuropathy. It might be good to get tested for diabetes. I have not been tested for low throid function but have a friend who was diagnosed yesterday. Her symtoms are mine! However, I am a diabetic (not on medication) and I am wondering if there is some connection. Why/ BECAUSE her entire family is riddled with diabetes and thyroid problems. By the way I control my neuropathy pain by keeping a low carb diet and not too much protein-not as much as some who go overboard on meat when observing low carb diets. And I eat good fats most of the time (olive oil, almonds, avocados) Hope this helps. Any insights for me?

  • I have had Hashitmoto's thyroiditis since I was 31 and I am now 59. I was told if you hadto have a disease this is a good one to have, just take a pill everyday. Yeh right. The longer I have this (with my medication) the more other things crop up with my body. I believe that most of my symptoms are from the thyroid problems. My joints ache in different places different times, I have unexplained headaches, I get ringing in my ears, my glands swell and I am miserable until they go down again. I have GERD, IBS, irratated colon. I am a mess most of the time, but I function and keep going. I firmly believe that when my autobodies are out of sync - I suffer. My TSH levels have fluctuated several times over the years. Once, I took one dosage one day and another the next until it balanced out again. I am now seeing a holistic doctor to see if I can get my system in sync again. I tell my story to women who seem to have the same symptoms I had, they get the TSH test and guess what they have it too. So pass the message to your friends, make them aware. Good luck to you.
