Hi Scarlett, I too have recently been diagnosed with hypothyroid. MY sister also has hypothyroid and I believe FM. But the ironic thing is I read that before FM had a name it was called "nervous exhaustion." you would not believe how many times my mother was hospitalized with that diagnosis. I remember times when she could not lift a hairbrush to brush her hair. And she would say "please kids - stop fighting I just sooooo tired!" (there were 4 of us kids) I think my mom had FM or CFS and actually I believe she still does.
