Am I right in thinking many of us thyroid sufferers also suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome amongst other things. Interestingly I was diagnosed with CS 3 years ago in both hands and had both operated on within 2 months. However I went back to surgeon some weeks later as pre op symptoms still there.He sent me for retesting for nerve conduction and the doctor said he felt it could be caused by something perhaps in my neck so sent me for an MRI. It was discovered through the MRI that I had actually broken my neck...and not only that but I also had a brain tumour...which subsequently became life threatening !. I am recovering from that episode now.
My point is that I now think the carpal tunnel syndrome was misdiagnosed bearing in mind my thyroid was removed some 9 years ago and need not have been done. Just another of the range of symptoms we all have
On a positive note I am grateful because through all of that I was saved from dying of the brain tumour, so bittersweet eh !! ( Incidently I had everything done privately so cannot blame the NHS ! )
