Are thyroid issues (specifically hypothyroidism) common with people who have MS? Some of my symptoms can be attributed to my low thyroid function which still hasn't been fully investigated. Just wondering if they might go hand in hand like bladder problems or low vit D levels.
Research has shown that it is common to have Vitamin D deficiency with MS and other autoimmune disease. It is also very common to have both hypothyroidism and MS. Hypothyroidism is common with other autoimmune disease as well. Bladder issues are very common in MS. In fact, the speaker Dr. Timothy Carrabine (a MS specialist), that CB, LuLu, and I just saw said 100% of his patients had bladder or bowel problems.
