Hi everyone! Im brand new to this site and wanted to run a few things by you and see what you think. I was recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia about a month ago and I have also had lupus for over 20 years (im now 42 years old). My lupus has been under control for many years with no flare ups.
I had all the classic symptoms of fibromyalgia...fatigue, muscle pain, etc...
Anyway, after further educating myself on the subject, I have run across numerous articles where they believe that fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome are really a thyroid disorder. That they are actually manifestations of thryroid disease or some type of metabolic problem tied to thyroid function.
My T3, T4 and FSH all fell in the normal ranges, but I have read that many people have not been diagnosed with thyroid disease until the testing went a little more specific.
Anything you can share with me regarding this would be greatly appreciated. I am also currently running a low grade (99.4) fever every day for the past few weeks. Is this a symptom of a thyroid disorder?
Thanks and look forward to your comments.
