Hi Dear

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

You must be having cervical spondylitis.This can be treated efficiently with pain killers , physiotherapy.For hypothyroidsm you should visit your Endocrinologist and then visit an Orthopedician for neck pain evaluation.

Take care.

I investigated a lot regarding the inter-relation between thyroid deficiency and cervical vertebrae problem. even scientific articles which proves that there could be a problem. the pain starts like pinching on a certain point and that spreads to my right arm. It talks about nerve misalignment which could be due to hypothyroidism. So I have doubts regarding this. My friend has the same problem in the beginning and later in course of 2 years it has spread to all her left arm and now she has numbness in her hand. very soon she is going to have a surgery for it. I am really scared and want to know more about it.
