    Question acute painful thyroiditis after a viral infection?

    ive looked all through these boards. but i cant seem to find anyone who has gone through what i have.
    at 16 i was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. they wanted to do radiation but i was too scared and just decided to stay on my meds...well i guess i went too long without seeing a dr and ended up going wayyy hypo.
    almost had it back to normal and then i got acute painful thyroiditis.
    after that in a matter of months i went to normal to hyper back to wayyyy hypo which is where im at right now.
    anyone else ever had this?
    im pretty sure my thyroid died.

    I've had viral thyroiditis (acute) twice. I was hyper & then hypo. Now I have thyroiditis when I am exposed to certain viruses mostly from kids. My first attack came after having a root canal that went wrong. I also had bacterial thyroiditis after the root canal.

    Now I have nodules & am waiting to hear the results of my 2nd ultrasound. I may have to have surgery. Thyroiditis puts one at risk for having nodules. Fam
