Mono and Hashimoto's
I have been reading as much as I can here for my 24 yo daughter was dxd with Hashi and surgical removal of half thyroid in 06. The floodgates of new symptoms and problems are open! Which brought me here.
She was severely exhausted and felt run down around Sept 07. I urged her to go to the ER to find reason why she could not stay awake. They ran blood- claimed it was a virus. Her symptoms worsened and she made another visit a week later to same ER and they found she had mono. (she was put on a steroid for the terrible cough she developed. They claimed it settled or attacked her lungs??) I need for her to get all these records STAT!
Now,to my understanding, there is no treatment for mono; as I have read here, correct? The body must wait for the immune system to kick in? Well, if you have an autoimmune disease, such as Hashimoto's does it work at all?
Living in NC, could she actually have Lyme?
