Post Is this a hyperthyroid or hypothyroid symptom?

I started getting headaches about 2 years ago. Is this part of thyroid trouble, or is it just part of peri-menopause as the books say?

Sleep well - there's people out there willing to die tonight so that you can wake up safely tomorrow.

Hi. Just remember, the thyroid has something to do w every action of the body. What has your dr said about testing,eyes,spine,sinuses,TMJ and yes thyroid. Do you have any other symptoms? As far as learning more about Hyper/Hypo-T a good book to start with would be The Thyroid Solution by Arem. There like 6 headache references listed.

Headache isn't listed as one of the more popular symptoms, but I do remember reading somewhere that headache does happen to some.

I have been suffering for a few weeks now with headaches almost daily which is not normal for me so maybe there is a connection.

I have a theory. That always means there's no basis in fact, but I believe it to be true. When I was really messed up, my muscles were so tight, especially my neck and shoulders. This constricts blood flow to your brain and we need all the blood flow we can get. Everyone go to a masseuse, I'll buy. IWL
