Hi all, I'm 34, I have hashimotos thyroiditis, have had 'atypical migraines ' for years and recently developed terrible pain and swelling in my knuckles and wrists. Three days ago I developed a painful swelling in my left temple and couldn't open my mouth properly. I went to the Dr and he put me on steroids for suspected temporal arteritis. The swelling in my temple has subsided but the pain is still awful.
I'm going back to the Dr tomorrow, any support/advice/comments gratefully received.
