I marked RA, Lupus or inflammatory but also have a thyroid condition.
I just realized how ineffective this whole polling system was going to be after I posted this. Ha ha!!! Because I too needed to mark three things and could only mark one. Whoops! I can blame this mistake on the fibro-fog! BUT, the whole premise of the post has it's merit and really does deserve a discussion, so all is not lost. :)
I have almost everything up there except Lyme in my family. I suffer from DDD and Osteoarthritis of the spine and nerve damage as well as Fibro. My Thyroid numbers are also slightly off myself.
My husband has chronic fatigue and I have degenerative disc (had surgery) along with the fibro., anxiety and depression.
I have the fibro, lupus, asthma, degenerative disc and osteoarthritis in ALL my joints.
Fibro fog is horrible!
I have ME/CFS, FMS, Addison Disease, Hypothyroidism, Cardiomyalpathy...
I know the poll isn't perfect, but you should vote for the thyroid problem then if you feel up to it.
