Cervical Dystonia and Hypothyroidism

Greetings,

I was wondering if it is possible for Cervical Dystonia to cause a low thyroid?

Thanks in advance!

I don't know what cervical dystonia is, but I have lots of feminine issues, including endometriosis. I am hypothyroid (low thyroid hormone).

Cervical Dystonia is where the neck either moves involuntarily from side to side or is bent in a certain position (where the muscles are consistently contracted).  It's like working out 24 hours a day, because the muscles never get a rest.  I have heard that it can be very fatiguing and I have experienced that in the past.

I never knew it was to do with your neck either..I do have scoliosis of the spine and that has thrown my neck out of shape, but i dont know if what you have would effect the thyroid function, but someone here should know, best of luck Dawn.
