Fairy ... I never used to take supplements, but apparently there's evidence that being hypothyroid can cause ligament/tendon problems ... also evidence that being hypothyroid can cause problems with the absorption of some nutrients from our diet ... my GP has told me to take supplements ... Calcium with Vitamins D & K because I take a very high dose of levothyroxine which can cause osteoporosis ........ liquid glucosamine because there are problems absorbing it from the diet so additional supplies may be needed, and Cod Liver Oil 'cos it's good for joints and the rest of me too.
My joint problems started not long after my thyroid packed up.
My knee is suddenly much less painful ... I had to kneel down in the kitchen to reach into the back of the bottom cupboard to get the flour out to make dumplings for the oxtail casserole ... when I stood up my knee did a huge click and now it feels a lot less painful.
I've had a look on the NHS website for knee pain ... I think I may have a torn meniscus ... https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/knee-pain/
