I was recently found to have subclinical hypothyroidism, I have elevated anti-TPo antibodies, TSH 5.24 (0.3-4.2). I don't have too many overt symptoms at the moment apart from some GI/stomach issues and a bit of fatigue.
One thing that has been bothering me over the last 18 months is one of my knees. I was hit by a car 18 months ago and suffered a relatively minor injury ( a sprained medial ligament) which should have taken a few weeks to heal. However, since then, the knee has just been getting worse. I went to a physio and orthopedic doc a year ago. He did an MRI and said there was nothing there apart from bursitis/inflammation, so he gave me a steroid injection, which seemed to make it swell more and get worse.
I can now walk ok, but when I walk up the stairs, it's a bit uncomfortable as I can feel and hear the knee clicking, and I don't feel as fast, mobile and comfortable walking and running as I did ( I like to run marathons!)
It's probably totally unrelated and I'm clutching at straws, but I was just very curious to hear if anyone has any thoughts or knowledge on whether my hypothyroidism/elevated antibodies could be having any impact on this ongoing problem; could it be making a relatively innocuous injury into something more chronic and problematic?
