Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board

I have never posted here before, but I check in and find all of your advice helpful. I have Hashimoto's and started synthroid in July after my OB discovered I had thyroid problems (after 2 miscarriages). Since July my goiter has decreased in size, until this week. Now I feel as if I am having difficulty breathing (like someone is choking me). Currently I am on Prednisone for an unfortunate Poison Oak outbreak and am wondering if that could be the cause. I am also under alot of stress, which is not normal for me. My question is do you think that the sudden enlargement could be cause by the steroids, the stress, or just a part of the Hashi's cycle. Any help is appreciated.
