My thyroid level is 13.21 h my B12 is 1793 h I have a ovarian cyst. Can this all be related?

Thyroid disease: Any thyroid abnormality, whether excessive thyroid hormone or less than normal can affect a woman's menstrual cycle, but either does not generally cause ovarian cysts. Your B12 level will not cause an ovarian cyst. Ovarian cysts are spontaneous, and at 56, may require surgery to diagnose the cause. See your physician for advice soon. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with a 1.4 CM hemorrhagic ovarian cyst. I have a history of thyroid cancer. Can these cysts ever be cancerous? Thank you

Yes: Ovarian cancers can be and often are cystic. However, you should discuss this with your doctor as small cysts with hemorrhage are far commoner than ovarian cancers. In the mean time you may consult this site for information on this topic.

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?

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

23 yof with hot flashes, osteopenia, thinning hair and now ovarian cyst... Thyroid is fine... Any ideas? Not on bc

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. The osteopenia is concerning because of your age but can be caused by some sort of nutritional deficiency, such as vitamin d deficiency or celiac disease (causing difficulty with absorption of vitamins). ...Read more

Shortness of breath, fever and burning in my entire abdomen. .. Worse by smoking and eating. Pain also in head neck and back. .. History of ovarian cysts and endometriosis and ideas?

See a doctor: You need to be seen face to face, have a detailed history and physical exam and perhaps some lab tests and imaging studies. This cannot and should not be diagnosed over the internet.

What can I do for shoulder and neck pain?

What can I do for shoulder and neck pain?

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

Good exercises for that are symmetrical isometric activities - swimming, rowing/rowing machine, bicycle or stationary bike, yoga. Once the muscles are stronger, the asymmetry in the spine may improve or stabilize. ...Read more

If I have shoulder and neck pain, could it be a strained/pulled muscle?

If I have shoulder and neck pain, could it be a strained/pulled muscle?

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
