Fibromyalgia,Hashimoto's thyroiditis and free T3's

I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis as well as severe fibromyalgia. I am under an endocrinologist's care and my thyroid condition seems to be under control. I'm also under the care of both a rheumatologist and a pain intervention specialist and I take lyrica, neurontin and very low dose methadone to manage my pain but still feel a level 5-7 pain every day. I would like to know if there is a relationship between a low free T3 level and fibromyalgia pain and could I be helped with the medication cytomel if I am tested am found to have low free T3?

I cannot answer your specific question but I have read that iodine taken with selenium can help with fibromyalgia. Of course iodine/selenium is often used to treat hypothyroidism. Unfortunately I suspect most doctors would rather treat hypothyroidism, especially Hashimoto's, using only prescription meds.
