Nope couchtater, no hypo or hyper Thyroid. I was hyperthyroid years ago, but that was caused by a heart med I was taking. I have multiple tests on my Thyroid and I am in the clear there. My anxiety is related to a 33 year history with Crohns Disease. I think the swelling tends to point to my arthritis, but I see my family doc on the 15th and will ask him for a referral to a Podiatrist. What concerns me is a friend recently got diagnosed with RA, and I went and researched RA and they say it generally starts in the smaller joints, hands, ankles, wrists and feet. And guess what thats where my worst pain always is. I am confirmed diagnosed with Osteo, just wonder if I should get further testing for RA. Thanks all for your thoughts!
