Does Thyroid Disease Cause Ankle Pain?
Doctor, my mother has a teroid disease but has been operated but before being operated on my mother has pain in the ankle.
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Thyroid is a gland located in the neck and functions in regulating the body's metabolism by secreting thyroid hormone. Disease in this gland can be in the form of enlarged glands, too little hormone secreted, or too large. The impact of these disorders can vary depending on the disease, can make a person become very thin or even fat for no apparent reason, easy to feel hot or cold for no apparent reason, palpitations, easy to sweat, easy to get drowsy or difficult to sleep for no apparent reason .
But regarding your question, although this gland has a lot of effects on the body, pain in the ankle is not one of the effects it causes. Pain in the area experienced by your mother may be caused by other things, such as abnormalities of the immune system, making the wrong movements, infections, and much more.
Our advice, if the pain still persists until now, check it with a doctor, precisely the orthopedic doctor for further examinations including digging history, physical examination and maybe support such as X-rays to further narrow the possibility. The handling that will be received later depends on the results of this examination. If you or your mother are constrained to take her to the orthopedist, it is okay to take her to a general practitioner first. If you find that you really have to go to a bone doctor, your doctor will generally convey it to you.
Meanwhile, limit physical activity, maintain ideal body weight, don't lift heavy weights, don't walk too much and stand up, you can try warm compresses or put patches on your ankles, may consume over-the-counter pain relievers by reading the rules of use listed, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
