I was diagnosed with cervical cancer stage 2A 1/2008 and have had radiation and chemo to treat it. I was diagnosed in 8/2009 with Graves and 5/2009 with Glycoma. I am peeing blood from time to time and have pain urinating.
I am having a biopsy of the bladder in May 2010 as well as to have the thyroid surgically removed. Dr. feels the bleeding and paid is due to radiation scarring. My reason for coming on line is that I am have great difficulty in getting up out of a chair and walking ALL THE TIME since just before getting diagnosed with Graves. Muscles in legs are in pain and when I try to push it I sometimes end up with excruciating pain in the back of my lets especially. To get up out of my chair I have a hard time getting started and lately I seem to drag my right leg more.... Is this related to the Thyroid? I can't seem to get a clear answer on this.
Having a lot of leg pain in the muscle and circulation. Have great difficulty getting out of a chair and walking up stairs, seems to be getting much worse. Hard to get moving as pain in legs when I move (especially when I first start moving after sitting down for awhile). I have Graves Disease (Hyper Thyroid) and not getting clear answers if this is related to the Graves or not. Currently taking Methimazole and back in August 2009 legs seemed to get better, but now much worse and still taking medication. Anyone with similar problem?
HyperT certainly can cause muscle weakness, particularly the large muscles of the legs and arms. Whether it's causing yours is hard to say, but I did find a reputable source which says that muscle weakness can persist after treatment for hyperthyroidism "especially if nutrient deficiencies are present".
