Movement disorders

Diagnosed with Graves three years ago, at exactly same time developed oral - facial dyskenasia which has progressed to sporadic movement disorder. This week T4 is 69 and TSH is 0.002, spasms are back. Endocrinologist says there is no link, neurologist also says not connected. Feel confused but convinced they are linked, please can anyone offer any information on similar situations? Due to see endo man in 10 days.

This discussion is related to LOW TSH  AND NORMAL TO HIGH T4,T3.

Body tremors and twitching are common side effects of Grave's disease and thyroid medications.

When TSH returns to your level - they should subside.

Please describe your sporadic movement disorder. Mine is stiffening of muscles. Willing to talk more.

It is important for parents, when bringing their child home from the hospital to take notice of their movements or lack of movement. In young children (0 – 3 years), weak muscle movement, spasms, or twitches can be overlooked by doctors who are unfamiliar with special needs children.  Movement disorders in young children can be caused by a number of factors, but it is important for the parents to keep watch and consult with the child’s doctor. If you suspect your child may have one of these or if you are curious please visit our website/blog for more information: http://www.cpfamilynetwork.org/cerebral-palsy-treatments/how-do-you-know-if-your-child-has-a-movement-disorder
