I have terrible throbbing, burning and needles in my feet. A heaviness. My elbows and hips hurt too alithough not as bad or as easily as my feet. My GP told me today the pain is related to my thyroid issues she gave me gabapentin to try.
I have a rather large goiter, but it doesn’t interfere with my eating or speech. Ive taken 2 grains of NatureThroid daily for six months even though my TSH is 1.2 before I started it. It was prescribed by a MD that is a self proclaimed specialist on thyroid disorders. His speciality is family practice.
I’m confused. DOES thyroid imbalances cause body pain? Have you had this type of pain? If so, what did you do?
Follow up: I will look up my results. Ive never had blood drawn after I started NatureThroid. I’ve been on it for five months. I DO have blood work from before I started the NatureThroid.
As for my pain. I have both, burning AND aching muscles and joints. My feet plus my hips and hands. The back of my legs tighten up. I have to stretch constantly. I feel better. But it starts all over again.
As far as my other labs: My A1c is fine. I’m not sure I ever had my folate or B12 tested
I had saliva tests 10 days after I started the NatureThroid. Back in August, 2017.
