Has anyone had mucosal irritation?

Has anyone experienced mucosal irritation including mouth, pharynx, and, if you are a woman, you know where? Here I was thinking I only had a viral thyroiditis that was slowly getting better with remaining side-effects of hair loss and some anxiety, and now this! As I am reading up on this, there appears to be some correlation but I am not clear what. Any input anyone?

Re: Has anyone had mucosal irritation?

Hi sparkie....embarrassing as it is...

Yes, I've had mucosal irritation, and I am a woman, and I've had it you know where too. Yuk! My problem was caused by chronic yeast infections though, that I had for over 20 years straight (at least), one right after the other. Funny huh, that once I got on a good dose of thyroid meds, I didn't get any more yeast inf's, (until recently, as a result of a course of antibiotics, but it was easily taken care of, compared o all of those bad years) So that caused me to have this lovely little condition called "vulvodynia" Oh...it sucked! It was soooo painful... I cried a lot!

I think that a lot of people with hypothyroid get irritated, inflamed mucous membranes....different areas, mouth, eyes, lungs, etc. Funny thing about that area we were talking about, that condition is kind of common with women with autoimmune diseases. My aunt who also has Hashi's-Hypo, [she has had it for about 14 years], and she was going along just fine, and then she started having severe, major, chronic itching in "that area" !!! That went on for a little over a year. After a dose increase, and using steroid cremes it finally went away. She had that every single day for over a year!

Inflammation seems to be a hallmark of this disease, IMO. Sparkie, why do you think you had a viral thyroiditis? (I'm just curious) Oh...I've also had an irritated tongue...the sides of it was burning, and scalloped, and hurt like the dickens. I've seen other people on here mentioning problems with mouth and tounge pain before, or irritation. Since my levels are pretty good, no more problems there. Hope you feel better soon. (Are you on thyroid meds?)

hugs,
Deda

Re: Has anyone had mucosal irritation?

The guys over on the sJogrens board may be able to give you some advice on how to cope with this kind of irritation and inflamation.

I have hypoT and used to get like little blood blisters on my tongue which were extremely painful, and yup the good ole yeast infections too were a constant companion. Once my thyroid meds got levelled they disappeared
