Thyroid

Hi, a friend of mine has Fibromyalgia. No i am not paranoid but I was Thyrotoxic about 6 years ago and my thyroid was treated with the pill. Since then, i find I go through stages when I have stiff joints, I cannot walk far because i dont seem to have strength in my thigh area, I have very irregular periods and do have a runny bowel problem. At times I do also get very tired and cannot sleep. But it all seems cyclical. How can I work on this. i do take Eltroxin but is there anything else I can take to make me feel more normal. I am saying that these symptoms are never constant - they change week by week, I have put on weight and tried everything - the most I get to loose is 5kg! I dont suffer pain or anything. And is Glandular Fever related to Chronic Fatique Syndrome? Thank you

Hallo Rolene
Chronic fatique syndrome can be triggered by injuries, operations or viral infections like Glandular fever, but GF is not the cause. Irregular periods, tiredness and weight gain could be symptoms of thyroid hormone dysfunction, but insomnia and tiredness can also be caused by depression. Stiff sore or swollen joints can be caused by auto-immune diseases. Did you see a physician for these symptoms yet? Maybe they need to do a full thyroid function test again.
