  1. Hello, would you please advise, I havent been diagnosed, but I feel I have many thyroid realted issues, such as thyroid mulitinodulat goitre, thyrogobulin antibodies and a diagnoses of fybromyalgia and other related disorders, for example irratable bowl. I have seen many medical experts, heart gastro, E N T, Gyni, but no conclusion as my T S H is just above normal.

    However I am currently struggling with stabbing pains in my thighs abnormaly cold, excruciating neck pain on the left side which radiates to my shoulder and up behind my ear,and weired heart palpations. I have had a E G G which showed abnormal heart rythm and small amount of flued was found, no futher testing. I am totally fed up so to speak, going to the G.P and being sent for more test to only return normal. I have decided to remain in pain with so many intermittant smptons, as I feel with respect to my G.P that I am labelled, when no other cause can be attributed to my issues, a suggesstion was for me to see a Phychiatrist, but I am not depressed just concerned and frustrated. What would you please advise ? My blood test was obtained privetly, these have been logged at the hospital at the E N T deparment and still no answer. I really do not now which route to go, private or G.P. Futhermore I can not let my health deteriorate as a am a deternimed lady despite my difficulies and pain.

    Thank you
    any information would greatly be appreciated.

    I was wondering if anybody knows if there is a link between thyroid disorders and hypermobility syndrome (EDS III). I was diagnosed hypothyroid 4 years ago with a TSH of 178.15 (.3-5.6) T4 7 (12-21) but my GP said that I had no anti bodies. Is it possible that the collagen in my thyroid is causing me to be hypothyroid rather than autoimmune disease such as Hashimoto’s. I have noticed that a lot of the people on the HMS site have thyroid problems.
