Just thought I'd post this as others have questioned joint, shoulder, collarbone/clavicle pain, weakness & tingling in their arm being connected to hypothyroidism.
I've been hypo for about 14 years & just discovered I have Hashi's, & a vit D deficiency.
I've had pain in my left collarbone & shoulder for just over a year. It started with my arm going dead & my fingers tingling. The muscle in my arm felt like it was swollen & solid but at the same time very weak. Of course the doctor initially said I had a trapped nerve & gave me amitriptyline to ease the pain... I took one & felt like a zombie. I lived with it for a while & then the doc sent me for a scan, saying it was tendon damage... Nothing on the scan, so the doc gave me anti inflammatory tabs - I took two and my stomach went ballistic. I've carried on & the pain came & went but then it came back with super strength about two months ago. I'm now at the stage where I can't even dress myself & find every time I twist or extend my arm I get shooting pains & the pain in my shoulder joint & collarbone is unbearable. Today I've had a steroid injection to try and ease the pain ( about an hour ago) the doc says he can give me three of these at 8 week intervals, but if that doesn't work then I have to see an orthopaedic doc & ultimately it will lead to surgery.
I firmly believe this pain came when I began to feel very ill with hypo symptoms after taking 100mcg of levo for years, I now take 150mcg a day & have gone gluten free as well as taking various supplements. I'm slowly trying to take control of my health as I feel let down by the system. I'm hoping the pain will ease but secretly I don't think it will until I find the right dose/medication to heal me. Thankfully I have a new GP who seems to listen.
Still in pain at the moment 🙏🏻
