  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • Was prescribed lithium for bipolar disorder. Lithium impacted thyroid levels. TSH rose to reading of 52. (should not exceed 4.5) Lithium use suspended, Synthroid added to combat thyroid condition.
    Severe joint pain ensued, first in left shoulder, left hand & left knee. Followed soon thereafter by same pain in right shoulder & right hand. (finger joints) Shoulder pain so severe that I could not retrieve wallet from rear pants pocket nor could I easily put on coat or long sleeve shirt.
    Suspended Statin use & within 3-5 weeks, shoulder pain & range of motion improved to 90% of normal. Pain/stiffness in finger joints has not improved. Cannot make tight fist!!
