Pain from hypothyroid perhaps? ben

Ben,
Have you had your thyroid checked lately? Not many people are aware that even a borderline low thyroid can cause muscle pain, peripheral tingling and muscle weakness. I have fibromyalgia as well as hypothyroid and experience many of those same symptoms, however, since increasing my dosage of T4+T3 the deep aching muscle pains and tingling have gone away. I also have to keep on top of my TSH because I'm taking Lithium. All of that said, there are reports about SSRI's (mainly Prozac, Zoloft) causing muscle pain because of a tendency of the more activating ones causing involuntary muscle clenching, bruxism.
