Hello, Thanks for the query. Hypothyroidism if not we'll controlled does lead to muscle & joint pain. However, the back pain described doesn't appear to be due to hypothyroidism. Please get it properly checked by an orthopedian. As regards TSH it should be maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L then only symptoms are in check. Thanks.
