I too have issues with my thyroid and had 1/2 of mine removed in 1988 and have been on synthroid for replacement ever since. I had nodules, that is why they removed it. Now I again have lots more nodules and am in the process of having a parathyroid scan done and most likely will have surgery to remove the remainder of my thyroid. Have you ever been checked to see what your parathyroid level is? Mine is a bit high (and was high about a year ago). I recently discovered that I have many, many symptoms of fibromyalgia. I got a SSD form in the mail (they want to see if I am still disabled.. I have been since 1997 due to other reasons), and I realized that I may have fibromyalgia. My Dr said he would agree that I possilbly have it , as far as SSD is concerned. He said he wanted to find out more about my parathyroid and and thyroid issues. The symptoms of parathyroid disease are very, very similar to fibromyalgia.
