Discussions that mention synthroid

Lupus board


Hi! I have had Hashimoto's thyroiditis for 30 years, and recently had an ANA test because I complained of fatigue. It was 1:1280. My other symptoms are muscle pain and spasms (especially in back, buttocks and legs so bad that it keeps me awake), Raynaud's, and some shortness of breath (I am a runner). I also have intense numbness and tingling in both arms and legs. I have some other symptoms that are mild. DOES THIS SOUND LIKE LUPUS? DOES ANYONE HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH DRUG-INDUCED LUPUS? I am on Synthroid, Wellbutrin, Diovan (Valsartan), and Nexium. My first rheumatology appt is not for another few weeks. I've heard that thyroid disease can cause a high ANA. Any thoughts or opinions??? Thanks! :(
