Overactive thyroid with muscle and joint pain
I have severe muscle, joint pain and carpal tunnel, after being referred to Rheumatology I was diagnosed with overactive thyroid and the Registrar confirmed this was what was causing my pain.
However, since this my GP and my Endocrinologist have both said that whilst it is not impossible that the pain is down to my thyroid my symptons would usually be found in someone with underactive thyroid not in OVERactive thyroid and when my levels are normal will test for autoimmune disease if the pain is still there. I have just been tested for thyroiditis but results not back yet.
I am really worried as the pain is getting worse, has anyone else had similar pain with hyperthyroidism?
