I posted a while back about some and injury I had, which also brought up issues of Cervical DDD etc. After being told it was constantly muscular, and doing physical therapy for months and really not getting much better.
I went to the ER and got a blood test and said my TSH levels where high. This means underactive thyroid and all they joy that brings. They are investigating the cause of the High TSH but this could could explain my upper back and other symptoms.
It is definitly frustrating when you are telling doctors something aint right and they just give you valium or muscle relaxers. They think I am crazy. Its frustrating.
I explain my symptoms - which are the muscle aches and pains, spasms - weird electrical and prickly feelings in hands and feed. Not bein able to sleep.
Not I am not sure if this is all related to this thyroid thing, more to be said on that.
But for all the frickin crap I been through, not one decided to do a blood test till i went o the ER and made them do it.
