My doctor wanted to try colchicine, saying that even thought I don't have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gout</span>, that the pain is similar, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> if it helps with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gout</span>, it could help me. Since I've been on colchicine, I've only had one or two days with pain. I'm on quite a few other meds for different reasons. Domperidone & Rabeprazole for damage from bulimia, Trazodone & Welbutrin. for depression and sleep aid as well as Melatonin. Atenolol for tachycardia, simple PVC and skipped beats.

I didn't know to ask for anything else. Now I know about the Free T3 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> T4. I also have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gout</span> which measured at 7.7 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> was put on Allopurinol.

Could this be related to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span>? What should I look for to alert me to potential thyroid issues? I am 56 years old.
Not huge, but kind of gaping <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> all swollen ..

) I've been looking at arthritis websites (wow, just what I need, another medical problem), and if it happens to be calcium, it can be caused by underactive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span>, Osteoarthritis, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gout</span>, or Pseudogout -- and Pseudogout can be caused by Thryoid disease or Parathryoid disease. Isn't it funny how so many of the "underlying problems" seem to always come back to the thyroid or the adrenals?
I'm a 43 year old female nurse who finished 4 unsuccessful cycles of IVF over a year ago. Previous <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> during the IVF treatment I was in good health <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> had normal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span> blood results and normal ovarian ultra sounds.

My FSH levels at this time were indicating that I was early menopausal.

The doctors ruled out epililepsy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> thought it was just for low iron <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> too high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span> medication. I have been told by my doctor to discontiue the synthroid. Not sure what to do now. I have degenerative disc disease, scoliosis, migraines, horrible pain, fatigue, insomnia, and weight gain. I know some of these are tied together. I am a single mother and am 29. My health is rather poor from day to day.

I am suffering from acute gout right now <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> have found many connections with hypothyroid <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gout</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a fair amount on its (hypo) connection to tooth decay and gum disease! does anybody have any knowledge of these relationships?

(weight 147lbs)The carbimazole didn't rectify this, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> in 2002 I had radioactive iodine. This was successful, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span> levels have been within the normal range ever since, and I haven't had to take any form of thyroxin. But, Oct 2004 despite my levels being within the normal range, my weight began to rocket. In one year I have gained 42lbs all on my abdomen. I have the appearance of being pregnant but I certainly am not.
Hello, Hyperthyroidism is an important cause of joint pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> stiffness.Did you get your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span> evaluation recently?

There are many types of arthritis, including rheumatoid and other types of inflammatory arthritis, osteoarthritis, infectious arthritis, and arthritis due to gout or pseudogout.
Initially the Dr's had to greatly increase my D and B Vitamins, but once I got them up, I have maintained my levels very successfully with Vital Nutrients, Multi Nutrients III (without copper <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> iron) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 1 Tbl. of Carlson's Fish Oil. Graves is an auto-immune disease <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it doesn't JUST go after the thyroid. I think of it like gout; if it finds a weak spot - it's gonna go there! I have also changed my diet to pretty much nothing processed.
low or high thyroid levels, liver damage, lung damage, corneal deposits <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> sensitivity to the sun. It can also interact with digoxin, coumadin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> beta-blockers and these drugs must usually be decreased in their dosages. Often times we will just stop the digoxin (lanoxin) in someone starting amiodarone. We recommend checking baseline thyroid tests, liver enzymes and function (PT) and pulmonary function testing for all patients prior to starting amiodarone.
He is also on Allopurinol for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gout</span>, prednisone for arthritis, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> was taking Plendil for high blood pressure. He has stopped taking the Plendil in the last couple of months because his blood pressure has been staying so low. Is there any suggestion as to what you think may be going on or what would you recommend being checked out. He has blood work done every 6 months or so to check his thyroid level out. He is getting quite tired of this and getting weaker all the time.
Many of the symptoms are the same as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gout</span>, but my blood tests come up negitive for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gout</span>. I have Kaiser health care insurance. They have sent me to at least 9 different doctors and specialist and none of them know what is causing this. I asked it it could be congestive heart failure and they said no. This has been going on for 11 years now. I am normally fairly healthy. I don't know if it has any thing to do with my ankle, but I have vitiligo.
I am just wondering that is the hypothyrodism the cause for both high level of uric acd <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> cholesterol. I am a 56 years old post-menopause woman <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> had never have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> gout problem before. However, the uric acid and tsh level were just getting higher and higher every year for the past 2 years. I am afraid if I don't get any treatment now, it may later develop gout and other symptoms. What type of treatment should I have now ?
Also have high uric acid and diagnosed with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gout</span> (7.7) My cholesterol is through the roof, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> have to take statins for that. Since 2000, I have gained over 50 pounds. My thyroid level had been checked over the years and were normal. All of a sudden it spiked.
This hair loss usually can be helped by treatment <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span> disease.

Correcting the hormone imbalance may stop your hair loss. Some medicines can cause hair loss. This type of hair loss improves when you stop taking the medicine.
I have many if not all symptoms including excessive weight gain even though I dont hardly eat and I'm not lazy. I've gained about 20 lbs in the last 6 months <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it hasn't been from my doing, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my armpits <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> hands sweat like crazy, so I was also wondering if Hyperhidrosis could be the result of Hypothyroidism. I know excessive sweating is with hyperthyroidism but was wondering if it can be for Hypothyroidism as well. I'm completely lost as to what to do.
Hi i hope you can give me some advice. I am 25 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> have pain in my knee's, ankles, hips, lower back, right shoulder the right side of my ribs and now my hands.
