I was wondering if anyone had heard of the connection between a mycoplasma infection and Graves Disease?
I was diagnosed with Graves Disease about 4 months ago, however, I have not had symptoms of this and had originally gone to the doctor to have my ashma inhaler refilled and recurrant sinus & laryngitis trouble. When the doctor did labs, she also had ordered a thyroid test.... which resulted in many other scans and whatnot. The anti-thyroid medication made me increasingly sick with each increase of dosage and my labs show the same result. Now I'm off the meds and I feel better than when I was on them, however, I am still not feeling 100%. I'm still having the sinus/laryngitis issues along with just feeling like I've never quite gotten over the cold I had back in February. Also weight gain of 20 lbs from December 2006 - January 2007 and another 10 lbs once on the antithyroid medicine.
I had been browsing the net and found that there could be a link between mycoplasma and thyroid conditions... and I was just wondering if anyone had thoughts.
