Apologies for the long post... Am new here and amazed at quality informations hope to get some informed advice. I been treated for seroneg lupus (visibly inflamed joints but normal bloods) with hydroxychloroquine and depot steroid x2 injections which has been transformational. However I’ve had a dry cough for + 6 months and a feeling of something catching my breath, top of sternum. illness (pleurisy) on recent holiday led to chest ct scan (inflammation) then thyroid ultrasound confirmed nodules. Connecting the dots led me to take private ultra thyroid blood test least week via medicheck. Awaiting results but been feeling crap for years until steroid and hydroxychloroquine miraculously healped severe pain and stiffness. Still feel rubbish. Am disgusted at the ignorance displayed by medics in general re thyroid and autoimmune. I’ve no follow up re thyroid and don’t know what to do. My first instinct is to get rid of the lumps but am clueless here and GP doesnt know I’ve had an nhs ultrasounds thyroid so no results posted!
