subacute thyroiditis and hashimoto thyroiditis

Two years ago I had a very painful subacute thyroiditis. It lasted for a couple of months and was relieved by an anti inflamatory. I now have a nodule that needs to be removed and have been told I have hashimoto thyroiditis.Does anyone know the difference between the two tpes of thyroiditis, coud the subacute thyroiditis cause the hashimto? I know hashimoto is autoimmune disease,

Re: subacute thyroiditis and hashimoto thyroiditis

The difference in the two disorders is that subacute is temporary without lasting damage and Hashi's is chronic, leading to inevitable, complete thyroid failure. Having a bout of subacute T somehow predisposes a person to acquiring Hashi's at a later time. Just your luck to be one of them, eh?

Re: subacute thyroiditis and hashimoto thyroiditis

I had subacute thyroiditis 4 years ago and I just had it agsin. I told them to do antibody tests because I have been having symptoms of hypothyroid also.Sure enough I have high levels of antibodies, so I am now on synthroid. Sometimes, subacuts thyroiditis can cause temporary hypo symptoms also.
