I have recently been diagnosed with boarder line hypertyroidism and im waiting to see a consultant. Some days i feel ok but some days i seem to feel so bad, have recently started getting really bad headaches does anyone know if that is related?? thanks.
yes it can be, in the cases of both hypo and hyperthyroidism. Unfortunately there has been little study done in the area and some physicians don't even think there is a relationship. But from my own personal experience with hypothyroidism there most definetely is.
Yes, I believe so....I have had bad headaches now for the 5th week in a row. I have Thyrotoxicosis (hyperthyroidism) that developed due to thyroiditis. So, yes, I believe headaches are related. I have felt like so septic, and it has affected my nerves, heart, lungs, skin, hair, metabolism, eyes, ears, muscles, etc. If it can affect so many organs, how can the doctors not think headaches are related?
