Fibromyalgia and Thyroid


I don't know how I haven't stumbled across this in the past 5 or so years. But it makes sense. As it all seems to come together. A link between fibromyalgia and the thyroid. I've read a little about it (a few links below) but my brain fog leaves me a little fuzzy on the exactness, but it seems the most together puzzle of anything I've come across since my diagnosis with fibro 5 years ago.

Compare the symptoms, the similarities are uncanny, ok really, they are the SAME!!

• fatigue
• weight gain
• cold intolerance
• joint and muscle pain
• depression
• memory problems

Is fibro the early stage of thyroid problems? (Subclinical Hashimoto's, before the thyroid levels get to the point of imbalance that they show up on a blood test?) Or is thyroid just another part of the fibro puzzle?

What exactly is the connection between fibro and thyroid and the key to feeling better?
