I had Hashimoto's Thyroiditis but luckily with synthroid have leveled out. My Mom and Sister both have Grave's Disease to where their eyes were bulging. My Mom had to have her Thyroid cut out because she had cancer of the Thyroid. My sister is still suffering with Grave's Disease and had to have her eyes operated on to take out bone so that her eyes would stop bulging. Neither one of them have FMS but I do. So I don't know if it is just running your body down, because I was a workaholic. I have since taken a job that is less stressful and regular hours. I think that people that have had traumas both physically and mentally get run down and the body deals with it in it's own way. Take care and God bless.

I have been wondering the same thing. I'm sure they are related since they are autoimmune disorders. I have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and am also on Synthroid. It has also leveled out but my Dr. says it is always there and just keeps hammering away at your thyroid. My FM started right after I had my thyroid storm. I also have 2 other autoimmune disorders.
