    Viral thyroiditis AGAIN

    This is the 2nd time in 6 mos. (that I know of) that I've come down with viral thyroiditis. I saw endo #3 today who will be THE endo for me...yay! If anyone lives in the Houston area, I highly recommend Dr. Petak. He was abolutely incredible and thorough. He puts the other 2 endos I've been to to shame.

    Anyway, he did an ultrasound of my thyroid and it showed viral thyroiditis. The good news is that he doesn't think I have an autoimmune thryoid disorder (which is what my other endo was convinced I had despite no real evidence of it). The bad news is...well, I have thyroiditis again. I don't understand why I keep getting it especially when it is so uncommon. Ugh.
