Alcohol’s effect on thyroid functions and its connection to other conditions - 247 Recovery Helpline for Drug and Alcohol Addiction

Alcohol suppresses the thyroid functions by blunting thyrotropin-releasing hormone response. This causes a decrease of peripheral thyroid hormones during chronic alcohol consumption, as well as during withdrawal of alcohol. Studies show that the hypothalamo-pituitary axis is linked with the development and continuation of dependence of all chemical substances. (Koob, LeMoal 2001)

A pain in the neck type of headache

A 29 year old right hand dominant chef presented to the emergency department with a four day history of feeling “not normal.” He was sent home from work because of a gradual onset of dull pain on the left side of his neck radiating up into his head, which was getting progressively worse, as well as “seeing two of everything.” The pain was not influenced by changes in posture. In addition, his right side felt numb and he was dropping things at work. He felt unsteady on his feet, which prompted him to seek medical advice. He thought all his symptoms had come on suddenly and were gradually getting worse. He denied any recent alcohol consumption, illicit drug use, seizure activity, head injury, or loss of consciousness. He had no medical history of note, apart from hypothyroidism, for which he was taking thyroxine.
