I have been researching Hypothyroidism (diagnosed in November 2015) and I can not find a credible explanation for the cause of muscle and joint pains. Does anyone have any idea why it occurs and can you point me in the direction of any literature on the internet so I can do a little research.
I have asked my doctor and was met with a blank stare, the endocrinologist was a complete joke and was not worth the £225 I spent on seeing him.
I started experiencing muscle and joint pains and that caused me to go see my GP at which point I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism. The pains have become much worse since starting T4 (but it could equally be due to the condition taking a turn for the worse). I have introduced T3 into the mix and I am now staring to see relief of the pain so I am currently experimenting with the correct T4/T3 combination. I may also try T3 only at some point and see if that makes a difference.
