I am wondering if anyone else out their dealing with Muscles and joint pain in Hashimotos thyroditis (Hypo) . I am having plantar fascia on my left leg , the pain is so intense in the morning when i put my first step on floor . My calf muscles are so tied that if i do stretching it hurts a lot . Is this can be low thyroid level or even your level is normal it takes time to heel.
Please share your symptoms specially the one related with muscles /joint pain
I've had sore muscles quite a lot, but I am really out of shape and an hour of work is like eight hours, so sore muscles are not surprising.
I've not had joint pain, but I have had tennis elbow and carpel tunnel in both wrists try to flare up. None of it developed into anything treatable. The symptoms subsided.
Some of it is brought on by the thyroid problems. Some of it is not. I can't tell the difference.
Plantar fascitis may or may not have ties to thyroid problems, like my "carpel tunnel" symptoms. Swelling of tissues and nerves. I have never read anything linking the two, but the thyroid does control the whole body.
It sounds like one of those symptoms you will need to treat seperate from the thyroid, even if that is what brought it on.
Be careful and seek treatment ..... unfortunately they thought my ankle problem was hypo related as per my Endocrinologist .. at least she said, "I *THINK* it is from not being stabilized, etc., etc." ... well, after all was said and done it was NOT the thyroid and totally independent of my thyroid and a severe tibial tendonitis and arthritis with heel spur and tendon almost ruptured. . . not to scare you, this is worst case scenario BUT shows what can happen when patient or dr buys time blaming on thyroid and may not be thyroid .. so seek treatment and I would say more aggressive vs. conservative as these things can progress.
2 yrs ago I had Plantar fascitis for no reason and I know the pain you are in. Took a long time to fully heal. Phys Therapy had me use a frozen small bottle of soda filled with water and do gentle "log" type motions on bottom of foot in the morning to work out the pain/kinks .. I know what you are going thru . .hang in there .. it really hurts alot!
I'm not medical professional - of course but I developed arthritis and tendinitis so severe it is hard to get out of bed in the mornings. All of this was after my RAI - also going from hypo to hyper. Are you seeing a rehumatologist? My rehumy has really helped with the arthritis, tendinitis and my ongoing fibromyalgia. High TSH levels can really cause muscle fatigue and aches too.
I'm sorry for all you are going through. Golf balls rolled gently under your foot work well along with Cheryl's frozen soda bottles.
Thanks for all participating in this thread . My current TSH is 0.407 last month so doctor change my levoxyl dose from 100 mcg to 88mcg. He also check RA and ANA for other antibodies to rule Arthritis and Lupus those came back negative..
I started to go to Chiropractor , she is pretty good in her work and i am feeling better today . I also schedule to see orthopedic doctor for further investigation. Since i diagnosed Hypothyroid because of Hashi i have been dealing this ups and down of my TSH level , is this can be an issue with muscles fatigue and tiredness and weight gain .I gain 25 ponds in just 5 months w/o change of diet.
Plantar fascitis is really hurting me every day and it is only in my left side.
The muscle fatigue and weight fluctuation are all part of this wonderful thyroid world we've been dropped into. Sorry. If it helps, you are in great company. Before thyroid problems I weighed 110 now I'm at 160 while being hyper (0.9). I'm also either hot or cold (no warm for me anymore) and my muscles, tendons, and joints are killing me. What fun!!!! ;-/
It took me about 6 mos to be honest ... and even still, it scoots around from time to time and I feel more anxiety if something else is bothering me than b4 using the Synthroid but generally I am ok. Synthroid for me is for other half not working + supression for small cancer findings.
Yes, carpel tunnel is one of the many things caused by a thyroid that is out of whack. The endocrinologist I saw for the first time years ago, who diagnosed me with Hashimoto's, told me that was one of the problems I could be facing with a bad thyroid; and in fact have had symptoms of carpel tunnel come and go throughout the years. Not bad enough yet to have surgery. My sis has the same problem and has had to have surgery on her right hand and will need it on her left also. He also told me to watch for upper right side pain, which means gallbladder. This too is something that you are more prone to with thyroid problems.
Oh Yes! I have hashimoto's. I've had carpal tunnel in both hands one of which I had surgery for and the other is being maintained with cortisone injections. I am a current sufferer of plantar fasciitis. I have all the aches and pains in joints and muscles and have just scheduled an appointment with my endocrinologist to try to address and rule out symptoms of Addison's. The Endocrine System is no joke!
