hypothyroidism and foot pain? any relationPosted by ramies on 8/28/04 at 20:10 (158892)
I was wondering if there seemed to be a connection between hypothyroidism and plantar fascitis.. I asked as I have very tight calf muscles along with fibro problems and I tend to connect that problem with not getting the right proportion yet of T3 to my T4.

This is an interesting question for me as well. I have wondered the same thing. I have hypothyroidism and had my first case of pf a year after my thyroid condition was noticed. I know(this from my orthopedic hand surgeon) that there is a connection between hypothyroidism and carpal tunnel syndrome so it doesn't seem too far a stretch to think there might be a link to pf or more likely tarsal tunnel. Any one have more info on this topic?

Hypothyroidism can cause problems with tendons,, at least that is what I have been told...... Course.... it seems any thyroid problem causes your whole body to be screwed up. I have been adjusting my meds over 3 years now.... I hope you find your proper dosage...... and may we all find the answer to treating our PF.........
time for bed........ sweet dreams......... Lorinda
