    I lost up to 20 pounds over several years before a doctor finally suspected thyroid problems and began the sequence of testing that resulted in the diagnosis of Graves Disease. Since then, about a year ago, I’ve gained a few pounds back, but am nowhere near the weight I was before (which is fine with me!) Since this problem only started recently, and my weight has been fairly stable, it doesn’t seem as if that is a factor. But who knows. There could be something else strange going on that isn’t related to the thyroid. If this tenderness persists I’ll contact the endocrinologist and perhaps my primary care physician just to be on the safe side.
