That's funny leesha, as my levels got more hypo, my pains started. I was fine when I was hyper before meds. I wish I knew what causes this, it seems very common among thyroid patients. Any answer Dr. Lupo?
I too was hypo thyroid and since I am on Syntroid my THS levels are back to normal, but I developed severe pain in my left shoulder and can no longer reach up with my left arm. I read somewhere that shoulderpain is common amongst those who have a low functioning thyroid... I wish I knew a solution.
I have been taking Syntroid for about a year and my THS levels are back to normal. Still I got a sudden pain in my left upper arm one day. It just started one morning and has only gotten worse since. I feel like an invalid and can no longer lift that arm or reach back. Anything I should know about? Could it be auto antibodies?
What should I do?
