I've been getting muscle cramps and spasms a lot lately. Is this possibly a thyroid or parathyroid problem?
Not the most likely-: Causes. Thyroid problem could possibly cause cramping but other symptoms are far more likely to be seen first in your thyroid isn't working right.

Despite being on birth control, I've been bleeding and cramping for ten weeks. Thyroid levels are normal, and not preg. What could be causing this?
Polyp or fibroid: When women take birth control pills, usually the bleeding is regular.

Uterine fibroids and polyps can cause that. Depending on your age, sometimes a quick office biopsy of the uterine lining is warranted as well. ...Read more
