vulvodynia and hypothyroidism?

 Hello everyone, I had a couple questions regarding vulvodynia and those of you who might also have thyroid issues. I have had vulvodynia for a little over a year now, and I find that my pain tends to fluctuate along with my cycle; the pain being highest before I'm about to have a period.

Recently I was diagnosed with subclinical hypothyroidism, after having a whole host of vague symptoms and not really getting any answers. Thanks to a blood test confirmation, I am now being treated with fifty micrograms of levothyroxin, which, though it has been less than a week, has done absolute wonders for my health and well being. 

So, my question is this: since taking the medication, I have noticed quite a reduction in vulvodynia pain. This strikes me as odd, especially considering that I'm due to have a period soon. I'm really trying to not get my hopes up here, but there is a part of me that wonders if there's a correlation between my thyroid issues now being treated and my vulvodynia pain being managed better. Has anyone else had experience with this?
