Today we will discussing fibromyalgia and autoimmune thyroid disease.  Though many with fibro are tested for thyroid function and told they are “normal,” this is commonly in reference to 1-3 tests of thyroid function. New research is demonstrating that as more thorough thyroid panel needs to be performed in fibromyalgia sufferers especially with tests of autoimmunity to the thyroid.
