Fibromyalgia and Your Thyroid

February 13, 2012

Treating your thyroid could improve your fibromyalgia symptoms. As I work with my clients, I find that they often have undiagnosed thyroid issues. The most common thing I recommend in a consultation with someone is that they get a full thyroid panel done by a good doctor who understands thyroid disease. Why? So many symptoms of thyroid disease look like fibromyalgia symptoms. In addition, thyroid issues can amplify your fibromyalgia symptoms making them worse than they would be if your thyroid was functioning properly. This article covers the common symptoms of low thyroid, the three main challenges fibromites face in getting thyroid issues diagnosed, and what to do after you get your thyroid disease diagnosed.


The drugs you take for fibromyalgia can cause nutritional deficiencies. Guest blogger, Missy Baxter, talks about key factors in choosing a good quality vitamin supplements, includes recommended vitamins for fibromyalgia.


I recently helped moderate Dr. Teitelbaum’s webinar with the Portland Fibromyalgia – ME/CFS Group about effective treatment protocols for fibromyalgia and CFS. This is a summary of his talk, including his SHINE protocol.
