    My ankle and knee joints all went to hell! I had a doctor and two physios tell me my pains were oesteo arthritis. As soon as I started the meds, the pain and immobility just disappeared.

    I have hyper thyroidism tsh 0.16. I understand that a Vit D deficiency and/or diabetes can lead/cause shoulder problems. Thyroid disease is usually or very often linked to low vit D so indirectly I suppose one can get a problem.

    Yes Sinead, I had a partial frozen shoulder and my doctor and Physio thought that it happened when I was overactive. My Physio gave me some exercises to do and it's a lot better now, but I still have slightly restricted movement. It can happen as your body is being overworked and also can be caused by vitamin deficiency.  I have Graves Disease, which brought on overactive thyroid, I went overactive with the stress of moving and husband being ill, as I was underactive for 11 years. My advice is go to see a Physio and take Vitamin D3 this is what I take as I read it on one of the forums.
