Antihistamine and thyroid disease

Common Questions and Answers about Antihistamine and thyroid disease

antihistamine

These are the antibodies that would indicate if you have Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and autoimmune thyroid disease that causes hypo. I think you need to be on medication. What does your doctor have to say?
What was your prior thyroid med and dosage, before switching? What is the natural thyroid you mentioned?
The TPO ab and TG ab tests indicate an autoimmune thyroid disease called Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. With Hashi's, the autoimmune system mistakenly identifies the thyroid glands as foreign to the body and produces the antibodies to attack the glands. Over an extended period, the glands are destroyed. Along the way, the loss of natural thyroid hormone production has to be compensated by taking gradually increasing amounts of thyroid medication, adequate to relieve hypo symptoms.

The only connection I have heard between celiac and thyroid disease is that they are both autoimmune diseases and if you have one, you are more likely to have the other. So I think they are correlated, but that one does not cause the other.
That's an autoimmune thyroid disease, in which the body sees the thyroid as foreign and produces antibodies to destroy it. Thyroid nodules are very common in those of us with Hashimoto's. They are usually nothing to worry about, unless they have distinctive characteristics. I have multiple nodules on my thyroid. Antibody testing for Hashimoto's would be blood tests for Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies (TPOab) and Thyroglobulin Antibodies (TGab).
Since you are having lethargy also, so anemia and liver disease need to be investigated thoroughly. Oral antihistamine, such as Benadryl can be used for itching. You should take a comfortably cool bath and wear smooth-textured cotton clothing. You should choose mild soaps without dyes or perfumes and use a mild, unscented laundry detergent when washing clothes, towels and bedding. Please take a second opinion from a dermatologist if the symptoms persist.

Behold, she says it could absolutely be related to solumedrol and gave me Rx strrength antihistamine for night and OTC antihistamine for day (got to stay awake at work). She also said, and this is the part I don't like, if this approach doesn't work, she may have to put me on oral prednisone and back the steroids out of my system. So, now I'm 4 weeks out from the solumedrol treatment, still battling hives, but will continue to take the antihistamine and go back on steroids AS A LAST RESORT!
More often, itching without skin lesions occurs with what we call Systemic Diseases. Examples of the latter are kidney failure, endocrine disorders (such as diabetes and thyroid disease), liver diseases and psychiatric disorders. You and your doctor might want to focus on such diseases.

In 1996, had a mysterious, bullseye rash on each thigh, and each buttock. I tested negative for Lyme disease, lupus, and HIV. In 1998, I had dull, but severe pain in left arm and severe anxiety, sweating, and breath shortness for a couple hours. I recovered and didn't see a doctor then. Shortly after that, I developed an occasional very strong palpitation, only one at a time, about once a week. Then, a couple times, I had long runs of them for hours.
TSH, free T3, free T4, thyroid antibodies - thyroid peroxidase antibodies (TPOAb), and thyroglobulin antibodies (TgAb). Excerpt from "Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies - TPO Autoantibodies and Their Significance" by Elaine Moore.... "In conditions of chronic urticaria, thyroid antibodies are not only indicators of chronic inflammation, but they appear to play a role in the disease process.
I am on currently on antihistamines and zantac and I got a steriod shot a month ago and took prednisone for 6 days all prescribed by an allergist. It is better than it was in the begining but anything I touch (desk, purse strap, clothes) causes me to get welts and then it breaks out into itchy bumps. Benadryl doesn't seem to help but I do sleep well when I take it. Someone mentioned H pylori so I'm wondering if I should see my GP. Thanks for the advice.
I have celiac disease (diagnosed 5 yrs ago), have had thyroid disease (after my 2 children were born - 9 and 5 yrs ago), and have just last week been diagnosed with lupus .... all auto-immune disorders. And I too have the 'rash' you are all talking about. 2 months ago I started getting hives - on my inner arms, forehead, chest, stomach, legs and feet. They first appeared on the day I got my period, went away about a week later, then appeared the next month on that day too.

I have been diagnosed with Undifferentiated Connective Tissue Disease and Hypothyroidism. In the last couple of months I have developed a horrible itch, mainly on my arms and thighs, but it sometimes pops up elsewhere. I have also experienced muscle atrophy on my right arm. On 4th of July weekend we had a barbecue for family and friends and the night before I was making potato salad. As I was peeling and cutting the potatoes and veggies, my right arm basically refused to cooperate.
In those days a minor tranquilizer was prescribed, and I was prescribed all of the tranquilizers available. They ended up going away, and then I went to some kind of antihistamine (chlortrimeten?). I really did not have them for 10+ years, but I did develop psoriasis around the age of 21, when I was pregnant. This was also very hard to diagnosis, and very bad, for approx 10 years, they cleared up very well, after stopping all the creams I was prescribed.
Your thyroid levels do not relate to autoimmune. However, positive TSI suggest non-active Graves' Disease (active Graves' would be TSI with thyroid levels of Graves'). Positive TSI with normal TOPs suggest hypothyroid phase which is early or first stage of Graves' disease. Graves' disease, most everyone has an initial period of hypothyroidism that's mild and not diagnosed although some people have overt hypothyroidism for years before moving into Graves' disease.

In some cases, chronic hives may be related to an underlying autoimmune disorder, such as thyroid disease or lupus. Under a doctor's supervision, foods that have caused allergies in the past can sometimes be added slowly back into the diet. You can even opt for immunotherapy. Discuss this with your doctor. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

I have seen my GP about this problem and he has prescribed a nasal antihistamine spray called, Allecort. I used it one day and stopped, because it made me feel worse. The dizziness has now turned to lightheadedness for me. I am currently taking Benadryl-D Allergy & Sinus when I go to sleep and during the day I take Tylenol Sinus Congestion & Pain - Daytime tablets. These drugs seem to be helping, because I have not felt dizzy.
