Could there be a link between hypothyroidism and chronic regional pain syndrome, particularly if the hypothyroidism is left untr

Posted by CBruns17

I have a matter involving a lady in her older thirties who was diagnosed with CRPS after a fall and wrist injury.  For several years prior to the fall and for several years after the fall she was hypothyroid and did not take the recommended thyroid replacement therapy.  She finally began replacement therapy after an emergency room visit where the ER doctor learned she was hypothyroid and was not treating the condition.  I am attempting to determine whether there might be a link of some sort between the CRPS and the thyroid condition.

My wife has been hypothyroid for 20 yrs. she also developed crps in her knee after surgery.  The doctor says her thyroid meds are doing ok according to her blood work.  But I don't think they test the blood properly, because she is always sleeping and always in extreme pain with her crps.  She is thinking of alternative medicines because our GP just is no good at fixing her.
