Re: hashi's and R.A
Before I found out I was hypothyroid (Hashimoto's) I had very painful and stiff ankles for all of last summer. I thought it was from exercise b/c I hadn't done as much as I usually do each year (now I know why I was so fatigued). But, I would still wake up with really stiff, painful ankles even if I hadn't exercised, and I could barely walk for about 15 minutes each morning. Since I've been on Synthroid I don't have that happen as much. I'm still not on the right dose or medication, b/c I still feel lousy and keep getting sick. I'm hoping with the right stuff my ankles will stop acting up. For a while last summer I also could not stand having blankets (even a sheet) on top of my ankles. I have other aches and pains but this ankle thing stood out.
