Discussions that mention vicodin

Thyroid Disorders board


Dear Jinglebts,
I was dx by my primary doc(family doc).I was suffering for years with the muscle problems & was sent to many specialists.I have a rare form of migraine that causes me to have stroke-like symptoms.I have been to several neurologists & no proper dx.Finally got a neuro to dx migraine condition but he was baffled by the muscle problems & said hopefully it would go away when the migraines were under control.(no luck)Meanwhile, family doc is stumped & I was on muscle relaxers(on an on going basis), vicodin for pain,and sleeping pills to sleep.My muscles can be seen moving through my clothes and I get"charlie horses" in places I didn't know had muscles. :p I get them in my breasts & butt too.Painful!! Needless to say my hubbby doesn't mind rubbing them out :nono: .After finally getting dx with hypoT my doc put 2 & 2 together & realized what was going on, finally.My hubby feels resentful for the 4 yr wait,but I am just greatful to know I am NOT dying(just a lil paranoid) & not crazy. :eek:
How did you get a dx?Are you in a lot of pain?I am having problems getting ajusted to my thyroid meds & doc took me off it for 2 days.(I am only 2 1/2 mos dx).My legs were so sore.Exercise is impossible,just getting thru a day is rough.I am hopeful now though, that it will pass as the thyroid meds help.
Good Luck to you.

i'll explain my iilnesses later (really complicated), but a question: do you have a brain lesion, or just seizures? i have a brain lesion that is not a stroke or tumour, and i've had it for seven years ... no DX for that either and that's been seven years!!
