What does prednisone do to the thyroid?
I have Graves and/or Hashimoto,s but have been off Methimazole for a month. My levels have been in range for a month but TSH trending down
Have had persistent headaches and shoulder pain muscles for about a month.
I have an appt with a new endriconologist tomorrow, maybe my symptoms are that I went off the medication too soon and am going hyper again.
I saw a rheumatologist for the stiff and painful muscles and headache in a certain spot on the back of my head. He thinks PNR, polymyactica rheumatica sorry about the spelling I’m freaking out right now, and possible giant cell arteria. Inflammation of an artery in the head. He wants me to immediately take 40 mg of prednisone, the GCA can cause vision loss and blindness. He scared me so badly I’m afraid to not take it, but what if the symptoms are from hyper thyroid.
Sorry to be so unclear I’m just scared. Would the prednisone cause a thyroid storm?
