Advil for the pain?
Hi, I’ve had this aching, (sometimes)throbbing, stiffness all over my upper back for many years now. I also have tender points especially at the scapula joint. I feel like I’ve been run over by a truck every morning. I’ve told two endocrinologists about this and several GPs and I’ve been dismissed every time. I’m also very fatigued and I can’t wear even remotely binding socks as my feet will fall asleep. Reading through posts in this group it seems my gut feeling that this is related to my thyroid is correct. I’m currently being prescribed physical therapy for my back pain which definitely makes it worse and I’ve not seen improvement. So my question is, how do you get a doctor to listen to you when all they do is look at your labs and say you are fine on the levothyroxine and to take an Advil for the pain? I’m beyond frustrated.
