    Are body aches common with thyroid cancer, especially in your joints and muscles?

    I don't know if I just done too much or if it's caused from the cancer. Hard to tell I guess.

      What I do know are certain treatments like chemos cause joint problems..I must say mine are really improving now. I am about 5 months past my last chemo.

      I'm not sure which stage of treatment you are in to answer fully. However, my son is in chemotherapy (just finished 2nd round) for testicular cancer and his joints, bones, and muscles hurt him, especially the week following a round of chemo. He also gets migraines daily. He takes Tramadol every six hours and that seems to help.

      yes..make sure to stay hydrated and do stretching as much as possible..I noticed my neck cracking alomost from my first chemo treatment. But I am now much better and I am exercising more and more so that helps too. But drink that water it helps in so many ways..

      Body aches are a symptom of the parathyroid issues, it is also one of the things I use to tell me when my thyroid is not a correct dose. It is amazing what that little gland affects. It will take time for you to get your levels balanced. Tracy
