Who knew? I think this interview on the Better Health website has some good information about thyroid disease. We screen for thyroid disorders a lot in Rheumatology, since conditions like myositis, fibromyalgia, polymyalgia rheumatica and lupus have symptoms that can be shared by thyroid disorders.
