Does anyone with hashimotos have muscle and joint pain? it's almost like I have cycles of extreme pain worse at night. My last testing showed what I think looks off but my physician says I'm in the normal range. I'm on armour thyroid. This is an ongoing issue. Would appreciate any feedback. TSH Your Value<0.010 uIU/mLStandard Range0.300 - 4.000 uIU/mL T3, Free Your Value 6.5 pg/mLStandard Range2.5 - 3.9 pg/mL T4, Free Your Value1.11 ng/dLStandard Range0.71 - 1.85 ng/dL

      i’m not on medication for my hashimoto, (included this because i see a lot of people are on medication, but none of my doctors informed me about medications) but i’ve had intense joint pain in my knees and hips. it would hurt to just move or try and stretch my legs out.

      I had joint pain almost everyday. Now it rarely occurs. My lab work showed that my TSH level was high months after everything looked fine. So my doctor upped my medication dosage and now it is normal again.

      Yeah I have UC , osteoarthritis, reactive arthritis, fibromyalgia on top of hashimotos everything is related in some way

      I did alot of research, it's common that hashimotos spuns a bunch of other disorders. Kind of snowballs. I have hashimotos, ibs, Gerd, gluten and dairy sensitivity, orthostatic hypotension, now they are thinking fibromyalgia...

      I read about benefits of curcumin supplement, active compound found in turmeric, for arthritis pain. So I bought the highly rated CuraMed 750mg capsules on Amazon. Started taking one capsule a day for one week. They say it takes 4 weeks to start noticing the difference. I hope it helps with my knee joints and foot cramping. I will update this post 4 weeks from now to let you know if this product made any difference for me.

      I'm not sure but I definitely have the stiffness. Almost like arthritis symptoms. My son has hashimotos and has taken levothyroxine with no issues. I have had my symptoms for so long that I have just learned to live with them I guess. It just seems worse lately. Wondering if anyone out there has suggestions and what their thoughts are on any of the synthetic vs natural meds. Anyone get nights where they itch like crazy?

        @crse I get that itchy skin or veins, seems to get worse with excess sugar. A lso seems more I stand or move pain starts in. My doctor thinks I have hashimotos, fibro and ptsd. The meds don't seem to do anything the only thing that has helped the fibro fog and exhaustion is 100 of levo, even though my doctor says 88 should be enough and puts me in standard or normal range.

      I too have joint and muscle pain. Occasionally the bottom of my feet cramp and toes get stiff after walking. Not sure if this is in anyway related to Hashimotos. Do you think it’s related? I take levothyroxine 0.112 once a day. Last blood test 6 months ago came out normal according to my doc.
