Posted by mary m on 7/26/01 at hrmin (054328)

i was diagnosed with hashimoto's disease approximateley 2 years ago. i have terrible pain from pf. however i have had this pain for a number of years along with a high ana titer. are the two related? i am already on thyroid meds. i have a 3 year old and i would like to know what can be done to lead a normal relatively pain free life?

It is impossible to say for sure if they are related without an exam but I think odds are that they are not. Most plantar fasciitis is mechanical and if mechanical modalities, particularly taping, brings relief then I would proceed along those lines.

There was a fairly recent post on this. Try a search using Hashimoto's.
