Hello all- Thanks for reading. I have noticed that over the past couple of years, more and more people around me are getting diagnosed with Hypothyroidism and are being put on serious meds. More specifically, my little sister was diagnosed 5 years ago and more recently, one of my best friends. My sister "started" with your basic TMS issues...chronic pain, sinus issues, allergies, fatigue and IBS and it (in my mind) has graduated to fibromyalgia-type issues and now Hypothyroidism. My ENTIRE family has TMS, in one form or another. All 7 of us. If the cat could talk, i think she'd complain about one chronic problem or another. Ive battled some very serious TMS equivalents for over 15 years and everyone in my family either has some digestive issue, chronic fatigue, insomnia or a chronic pain issue. Knowing now how serious TMS can get when untreated, I cant help but think the two are inexorably tied to one another. Also, whats suspect to me is that a lot of the people I know who now have Hypo, all had chronic/TMS-type issues that gradually led up to their Hypo diagnosis. Has anyone seen and/or read about any correlation between TMS and Hypo?
