Asked to take 5 aspirins a day for a while

Hi everyone, I just went for my 1st endo. appt. today and fortunately had a very nice lady dr. who seemed to listen (hopefully my next appt. in 2 wks will go just the same). Anyway, she said my thyroid is definitely enlarged ... and with all my many symptoms, and from the past initial TSH tests that have been done in the past 6 mos, 5.3 and 5.6 (AM) and 2.2 (PM), and with all my other TSH levels in the norm range from the past 10yrs plus (1.4 - 1.8), she's diagnosed me with Hashi's Thyroiditis. She's requesting the Free T3 and 4 bloodwork along w/a few other tests and also an Adrenal Testing (AM only).

My question is, in which I forgot to ask her why is, she wants me to take 5 aspirins a day (not ibuprofen or tylenol), until I come back in a few weeks for my next appt. Has anyone ever heard of this or done this before? And is this to try and calm down the thyroid? (What I do remember her saying was "since you had a severe allergic reaction to prednisone", that she wanted me to take aspirin), hmmm. Thanks for your help
