    Thyroid and joint pain

    I am just curious if anyone was experiencing joint pains that was completely solved when starting Thyroid meds, if so, what joints were giving you issues?

    Are you hypo or hyper? Why don't you post your thyroid levels.

    I do have an appointment with Defy next week for TRT and chat with them regarding Thyroid numbers as well. I am assuming I would be classified as subclinical hypothyroidism, but here are my numbers:
    TSH 3.080 (0.450 - 4.500)
    Free T4 1.03 (0.82 - 1.77)
    Free T3 3.1 (2.0 - 4.4)
    RT3 20.3 (9.2 - 24.1)
    Thyroglobulin Antibody <1.0 (0.0 - 0.9)

    People with hypothyroidism have an increased risk of developing other autoimmune diseases.

    Fibromyalgia is also a big symptom of low thyroid particularly low T3. Fibro can mean sore joints and or sore muscles. So yes it is a symptom of a thyroid problem.

    Your FT3 is barely at 50% and your FT4 is well under 50% so it's no surprise you have symptoms of fibromyalgia.

    Would the problem be with the Thyroid or is a deficiency in Cortisol causing both Thyroid problems and pain?

    Hopefully Defy will give you T3 med to get your RT3 below 15 and increase your T3. Here is some good info: https://www.restartmed.com/reverse-t3/. High RT3 can and will cause a lot of symptoms. Let us know how the consult goes.
