Hello, I have been diagnosed and treated for Hashimotos for 25 years and still have meds adjusted every other year i.e. up then down and back.
I feel that when a little under medicated I can get leg cramps from the knee down and into the foot. This can be very painful and bothersome. Could my cramps be related to thyroid issues?
Since you are hypothyroid, other than thyroid medication what all supplements you take? Normally hypothyroid patients have iron, vit D, calcium, selenium deficiencies. So your leg cramps could be due to that. I dont think under dosage of thyroxine produces leg cramps, whereas over dosage can easily do it. So hope you screen for nutritional deficiency. And also meet a gyenecologist if you are around the age of menopause.
