I have been having bone and joint pain for the past few months. Recently it has become more noticeable, especially in my hips and shins. Sometimes it is just a dull slight ache, other times is feels like it is throbbing. It is not severe, but enough to make me wonder! Any ideas?
Aches and pains are often associated with hypothyroidism, but it’s worth seeing a rheumatologist, and have gene testing for HLA-B27 to see if you’re at risk for certain forms of Arthritis – like ankylosing spondylitis. None of that is meant to scare you, even if you were to develop it – that doesn’t necessarily mean it would be active.
