Can low thyroid levels cause grandmal seizure?

Typically not

Inflammation_of_the_thyroid
Low thyroid typically causes one to slow down, gain weight, have memory problems, and a number of other symptoms... but not typically seizures.

Being injured with pubis shearing & sacroiliac dysfunction for a year & not being treated can that cause the thyroid to be low? I now have hypothyroid

See below

Thyroiditis
Off the top of my head I cannot see the relationship of the two. The incidents seem to be more coincidental than related.

Dr. Ted Leem answered:

Can thyroid cancer cause hypothyroid symptoms?

Depends

Cancer
Most of the time, thyroid cancer does not change thyroid function. However, after being treated for thyroid cancer, you will be hypothyroid if your thyroid gland is removed.

Can thyroid medication for hypothyroid (levoxyl) cause eyes to swell or hurt?

Usually not

Graves_(278x181)
Usually not, unless the medication caused the eye to be more dry. More likely it is dry due to the environment or the thyroid condition it's self. It is possible you are developing graves Ophthalmopathy (a condition associated with thyroid problems).

If I take a low dose of levothyroxine (25 mcg) for life, would my thyroid become lazier/ slower? Can this low starting dose work for hypothyroid?

No

Your thyroid wont become lazy or tolerant. The dose your on is a good starting dose and may be the right dose.

Dr. David N. Dang answered:

Can thyroid nodules cause hypothyroidism?

Occur together

Thyroiditis
It is probably more likely that the nodules happen to occur along with hypothyroidism, i.e., whatever caused the hypothyroidism cause the nodules as well. Multinodular goiter is a possibility along with prior thyroiditis.
