    I talked to my pain Dr. this morning and we talked about my thyroid problem.

    I would have NEVER known this but according to him, if you are experiencing thyroid problems, it can affect your nerve endings, causing you more pain problems. I'm not sure I still understand but if anyone has heard of this would you please explain this to me?

    Does this make sense to anyone? I'm sure he knows what he is talking about but in my situation, that's not good.

    Just wanted to share this with everyone,

    I have found that if my thyroid medication is too high, my hands swell and my pain is worse, especially my knee pain.
