Plantar Fasciitis and Thyroid

Posted by steve on 3/31/04 at 10:53 (148184)

Does anyone know if there is a correlation between Plantar Fasciitis and Thyroid disease? I have been on levothyroid for years, and now I have major pain. I also think the doseage is off, or the formulary has changed.
Anyone with experience with this?

Much depends on how well your hypothyroidism is controlled. If you are euthyroid, that is, your thyroid levels are maintained at normal levels then that should not be a factor.
