Thyroid disease: That failure to produce enough thyroid hormone can cause numerous problems include degenerative disc disease. See your doctor for evaluation and tests.

Testing: Very vague groups of symptoms occurring simultaneously. Could be an autoimmune reaction or some other health syndrome. Get to an Internal medicine Dr. and I am sure tests will be run.

TMJ expert: The neck arthritis, herniated disk and cubital tunnel have been present for longer, just symptomatic now. could be coincidental . See a TMJ expert to explore your TMD.
