Ovulation pain?

Hi I am 28yrs old. I have been diagnosed with an autoimmune condition with my immune system attacking my thyroid as I have raised thyroid antibodies (TPO) in my blood.

I have recently ovulated however I am experiencing very painful ovulation cramps again and the ovulation hasn't even taken place a week ago! This pain is ovulation pain I am sure, as it's a stretching kind of pain.

I have a blood test tomorrow, is it possible that anything thyroid-related would show up in this as I'm being tested for TSH, T3, T4 and thyroid autoantibodies along with a CBC? Is it possible also that my condition is worsening? I don't know for how much longer I can put up with this pain if the condition is now developing into full-blown Hashimoto's/Hypothyroidism and I'm not on any treatment for it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hi there,
In Hashimoto’s disease the common symptoms are fatigue, sensitivity to cold, heavy or prolonged periods, constipation, dry skin, puffy face, hoarseness, high cholesterol, hair loss, memory loss, irritability, weight gain, muscle and joint aches, weakness, flaky nails, and fertility problems. Hypothyroidism resulting from Hashimoto's disease is treated with levothyroxine and you will need a blood test every 6-12 months to check your thyroxine levels. Avoid intake of leafy and cruciform greens like kale, spinach, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and mustard greens, along with peanuts, pine nuts and millet. Do consult an endocrinologist. Early treatment will be helpful. I hope it helps.
Best luck and regards!
