      Hello. I recently started having head pain behind my left ear. It’s only been 2 days. My TSH has been going down and I am suspect of this. Back in Feb, my TSH was .32, in May it was 2.24, June 23, it was 0.23, and on June 30, it was 0.07. I am on 200 mcg and I’m sure my doctor will lower my med. I have a hard time getting regulated, it always seems to be up and down. I’ve never been this low (0.07) and maybe even lower now. So I am not surprised my head feels like it has pressure in it but just wondering if any of you else have experienced head pain when you were hyper. The pain doesn’t hurt when staying still or lying down but when I get up or move, it twinges behind my ear.

      Thanks.

        Headaches are not one of the listed symptoms associated with being hyperthyroid. While you might find someone online who’ll say, “Oh, yes, I had headaches while I was hyperthyroid, too,” it is not a “normal” symptom (i.e. one that has been shown historically through tons of patients.) If it persists, you might talk to your doctor about it.

          I’ve had headaches off and on. It turns out that certain foods give me a headache. The foods I’ve learned to avoid are chocolate due to the caffeine, anything with nutrasweet/aspertame and yogurt. Cheese can be a headache trigger for some people but not for me. I love cheese so I’m happy about that.

          Have you noticed if the headaches occur after eating certain foods?

          Just a thought.
