Hypothyroidism And Sore Feet
VERY POSSIBLY: As there are different types of ankle and foot swelling, you should be examined and evaluated by a doctor.

Very very swollen body. Very sore joints esp feet can't barely walk at times. Weight gain. I have hypothyriodism 125mg synthroid (thyroxine). Is it linked?
Classic hypothyroid: One of the most common symptoms of hypothyroidism (there are MANY) is cold hands and feet. The thyroid controls your metabolism and body temperature. Although you are taking levothyroxine, you are most likely not taking enough. I preferentially use Armour dessicated thyroid--a combination of T2, T3, (liothyronine) T4, rather than levothyroxine, which is T4. Thyroid blood tests are usually a waste of blood. ...Read more

Definitely: With a low thyrid count, this will decrease your body's metabolism (breakdown of food and other products) as one of the side effects will be the swelling or edema of the lower extremities. See your doctor or endocrinologist for treatment as usually after being regulated with thyroid medicine, the swelling will go away. ...Read more
Is sujok accupuncture where needles are used only on hands & feet & not on any other body part, effective in treating hypothyroidism & infertility.
Not effective: Acupuncture is not in any way effective for treating hypothyroidism. If you do not have enough thyroid hormone, then a supplemental thyroid hormone replacement is the only effective treatment. Acupuncture has been used to treat infertility, but the reports are not convincing - many women get pregnant during infertility evaluations even without any treatment. See a reproductive endocrinologist! ...Read more
