Arthritis has been linked, strongly, to Type 1 and Type 2 Hypothyroidism, the latter which does NOT show up in thyroid blood tests.
If you or your family history have chronic pain and/or fatigue, arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, depression, weight gain, and many more, I highly recommend the book by Mark Starr, MD: Hypothyroidism Type 2, The Epidemic. He writes like a doctor, very scholarly, in a clinical fashion; when he uses words like "Epidemic" he is specifically referring to the clinical definition of the word, epidemic. Wow I thought it was just another punk / blast / shock marketing title, but no.
