I finally dragged my behind into the Urgent Care today. I have had such a bad time with my throat being extremely sore and losing my voice. It has affected my sleep. Thought maybe post nasal drip. Well the doc does a strep test which ends up negative. He really thinks I have allergies. He gave me an antibiotic for the infection there and also some samples of Allergy medicine and also a nasel spray.
My question is if there is any correlation between having TD and allergies. I never had allergies before and I really think this is what I have now. I am in bed sleeping and wake up with watery eyes, hacking, sore throat and that drip. Ugh! This morning I got up at 2:00 and took some Nyquil and stayed downstairs on the couch not to wake up DH. Finally went back to my bed at 5 am. Need less to say, I am exhausted! I will try the samples for a week and then check with my ENT to see if I should get tested for allergies.
Any Thoughts?

Re: Question

Hi Bella, Sorry you are so miserable. I really believe that you have more sinus problems with TD. When I had graves I had sinus infections constantly, and always congested.

When I was hypoT(now normal Armour) had the same thing but not quite as bad. I take sudafed but you can't take that stuff if you are hyper.

Are your thyroid levels low right now?

Re: Question

I am fine where my thyroid is concerned. My TSH is way low, but free T3 high normal, Free T4 is low normal. My doctor and I feel pretty good about keeping my levels as they are because I do feel fine otherwise.
