Can an underactive thyroid and an ovarian cyst (10cm)have anything to do with each other, also period 1 week late, could either of these be causing this?
Yes: Underactive and untreated hypothyroidism can cause late or delayed menstrual cycles. The thyroid has no relationship, however, to the formation of an ovarian cyst. Your cyst, at 10cm, is at risk of rupturing or turning on itself, called torsion. Have you spoken to a doctor about having the cyst drained or removed? No roller coasters, I've seen patients with big cysts get torsion from a coaster. ...Read more

Several issues: There are several areas that should be explored with your doctor. First, get evaluated for a hormonal imbalance. With thinning hair and an ovarian cyst, the diagnosis of pcos is possible.

Depends on the cause: It depends on why you have this pain. If its from excercise, you may need a good stretching routine. If its from hunching over a desk all day, it could be a question of improving your posture. For acute pain however, I have found heating pads with or without ibuprofen/motrin/aleve to be helpful. Acupuncture & chiropractic are also helpful. For chronic pain, physical therapy may be very beneficial. ...Read more

There are certain areas on my head that feel tender or sore. I also have shoulder and neck pain. What could this be?
How can I relieve shoulder and neck pain after a car accident? The doctor said nothing was damaged, but I still hurt.
A few possibilities: Could be strained muscle or injury, nerve inj., infection, spasm, or vertebral or rib dysfunction. Neck muscles attach to ribs, too, so if a rib is out of whack or refuses to move, the muscle gets tight and painful. A good history & physical exam including an osteopathic hands-on exam might find the cause. Manipulation may help. Other treatments may be necessary-but first you need a proper diagnosis. ...Read more
Posture: Without a history of trauma, neck and shoulder pain can be caused by poor posture, a bad disc in the spine, or an irritated nerve in the neck. Try placing a lumbar support behind your lower back when sitting to help straighten your shoulders. Sit closer to the table and avoid 'hunching' over the plate. If your pain doesn't improve in 2 weeks see your physician. ...Read more
