Hello, my first post here. I have had Hashimoto's disease diagnosed in 1996/7 (aged 34/35) though the symptoms had been ongoing for approx 18 months before diagnosis.
This has been managed since then on 150mg levothyroxine daily since then. I am concerned about muscle cramps and spasms in hand, legs and feet also occasionally in my back. Have spoken to GPs over the last few years I have experienced this, alas no-one seems to have any idea what causes it.
Just a week ago I developed really bad ache in my stomach radiating to lower gut. I initially assumed that my IBS was having a flare up (nothing unusual for me) However, it has not followed the usual pattern and the cramping around my midriff is still going on, worse if I try to eat or drink anything. No vomiting (apart from reaction to painkillers prescribed) Had bloods taken on Friday and appointment with GP at 5.30 to discuss results. fingers x'd.
Anyone out there who has experienced similar?
