Muscle involvement in hypothyroidism has been recognized for many years. Subjective symptoms of weakness, fatigue, myalgia and stiffness are present in majority of cases. Although muscle weokness may be severe, objective findings on physical examination are often unimpressive. This may be because of many patients perceive fatigue. and lack of energy as muscle weakness. Examination may reveal varying degree of proximal weakness, myoedema and delayed relaxation of tendon reRexes. High serum creatine kinase is the most common laboratory . abnormality indicative of muscle dysfunction in patients with hypothyroidism.
