subacute viral thyroiditis

Hi, I am new here with some questions. I am currently being "investigated" for Lupus. Meanwhile...I just had a second bout of Painful Thyroiditis(subacute viral). The first I had was 6 yrs ago.(Supposedly it is rare to recur) They both followed a viral illness. This second one though began while I was on a prednisone taper...It felt uncomfprtable to wear a scarf or turtleneck. When I finished the taper...I had full blown pain and horrible swelling of my thyroid. I called my PCP and they ran a TSH and a T4. The weird thing is that both were normal. Also, they did not run a SED rate(which is the Hallmark test for Painful Thyroiditis.) If I recall correctly the last time I had it, all tests,including SED rate were normal. This is extremely contrary to the norm. I am wondering if there is any relation to other thyroid issues. The only other Painful thyroid conditioon I could goooogle was the rare case of Painful Hashimoto's...but my symptoms go away and all my tests are normal. What's up wth that? Anyone else deal with this
