Just wondering if there's anyone else here with thyroid issues and if so, if you've found pred affects things.
I was born without a thyroid gland (which judging by Google seems, provided it's noticed promptly and dealt with right away, to be a much better option than having an autoimmune disorder or hyperthyroidism - no other issues, for me medication has no side effects as it's just replacing something that isn't there and it pretty much doesn't affect me, though it might if I had a needle phobia... ;))
Normally it's pretty well controlled and I never really worry about it as it hardly ever causes symptoms. However, I'd been having slightly 'pred-like' mood swings and feeling a bit odd so got it checked again last week and got results today. I've been on a pretty similar dose to what I was on for ages but it was going up and down a bit in November after I had a big dose of pred. Now for some odd reason the TSH has shot right up (normal is 1-3 or sometimes 4, I was at 15). Asked GP, 'umm, why?' and she said no idea (drs always seem to be a bit puzzled with thyroid things, they ask me about it sometimes!) but maybe it was the pred (I finished a month ago).
What I have specifically is pretty rare but I wondered if anyone else here had thyroid issues of any sort and happened to have any thoughts on that and pred. I'm hoping it's NOT that of course as it just adds extra annoyance/complication and if/when I do need pred I don't want to add this stuff to the mix.
