Have your thyroid tested full panel and know your numbers, doctors have a tendency to say they are "normal" when that is not the case. I know hypothyroidism runs in my family and I wasn't diagnosed until my late 30's and it was after years of feeling terrible. 2 years later I was diagnosed with hashimotos.
I also want to add everyone has That age old question does thyroid and fibro go together? Mary Shomon, who I have read numerous of her thyroid books, is putting this and other questions in a fibro/cfs book. Now I have not read this book but the article link below shows some connection symptoms.
I'm hypothyroid, my entire family is either hypo or hyperthyroid. Haven't had Fibro diagnosed, but a bunch of other chronic illnesses run in the family, although the most common are hypothyroidism, MTHFR gene mutations, migraines, peripheral neuropathy, and lupus.
I loved my doctor in Georgia, my number's were close to hypothyroidism and he went ahead and put me on a thyroid pill. Since my 2 nd doctor in a year left the practice I have been out for about 6months. I got my cardiovascular doctor to prescribe my metropolol and my lovistain. I don't have a cholesterol problem but with both my parents heart disease's I was put on it as a precaution.
My ex's mom died from thyroid cancer so yes please please get your levels tested it's that important!
Shammagren, I am sub clinical hypothyroidism, and the endocrinologist is treating me because my thyroid is damaged (forget the word, but abnormal on both sides). PCP days I don't need treatment. My family hx is predominately females. Against my pcps wishes I am staying under the endocrine doc. Thanks for sharing link! 😷🙏🌼
