Medical Mystery: Thyroid Resistance in Fibromyalgia

Understand that fibromyalgia is a completely separate problem

It is also important to emphasize that fibromyalgia or thyroid hormone resistance is not entirely a problem with thyroid function. It is a rejection by the mutant cells of the thyroid hormones, leading to similar symptoms of thyroid dysfunction. Among the indicators of fibromyalgia are:

  • Bladder and urinary tract problems
  • Repetitive muscle strains, swelling, and stiffness
  • Excessive weariness and fatigue
  • Troubled bowel movement, either diarrhea or constipation
  • Significant gain in weight
  • Slow heart rate
  • Depressive episodes
  • Forgetfulness
  • Anxiousness and irritability
  • Skin dryness
  • Irregular menstrual cycle
  • Insomnia
  • Heart palpitations
  • Migraines
  • Tingling and numbness in muscles
