Sore head

Hi does anyone get sore patches on there head

The patches are tender to touch abot the size of a 10p

I have graves and at present I'm being treated with carbimazole

I'm a little over medicated so a bit under at the moment

Have a few other underactive symptoms stiff joints ect but nothing I can't put up with but this sore head is driving me mad

It's a bit like your wearing one of those Alice bands with teeth in and it's to tight

Thanks any advice welcome

Oh also forgot in case it's prudent although graves is active I have hashi antibodies as well


I get sore spots on my head quite a lot and always thought it was due to my aneurysm so maybe you've solved it for me :-) x


Hey! I' ve noticed this as well; just been diagnosed with Grave's and on Carbimazole as well. Do you think it is the tablets?



I don't think so as I had it before being diagnosed I was wondering if it was thyroid related as I'm now begining to. Feel better im noticing smaller things that still are not right I had lots of under active symptons as well in the begining pain in feet hands and strangely a adversity to noise like people washing up and door latches this went away at begining of treatment and have resurfaced I know I should be grateful that I can now stand up sleeping better and do not feel like my body is revving all the time but it is so distracting


I get patches that feel like bruises, but I thought they were adrenal-related. Not hyper or on carbi.
