From this study (2 weeks ago):
I have tried several different anti-depressents which did not help. Also electrical stimulation. Pain, burning and all other symptoms continue.

Many antidepressants do not work for many people with hypothyroidism, especially noted in those whose depression is probably a symptom of the hypothyroidism. Speak to your primary care provider, psychiatrist, and endocrinologist about getting vitamin D level checked, taking an MAOI, and taking a natural desiccated hormone (NDH) such as Nature-throid or Armour. Good luck! Many doctors (NPs, and PAs will only prescribe synthetics). If they will not consider an NDH, you need to find an endocrinologist who will.

Came down with fever and sore throat on 11/22/13. Diagnosed in ER on 11/23/2013 with Strep Throat via rapid test. Given 7 days worth of 500mg of Azithromycin. 11/26/13,developed pustules on palms. Went to doc on 11/27,got lab work. Pustules on palms, wrists, in mouth and airway, on face... progressed rapidly. Went to urgent care on 11/29. Changed meds, had more lab work. Became more severe as it spread to trunk, and legs on 11/30. Went to ER and was admitted into the hospital. Continued to decline. Right knee swelled requiring mobility assistance. Declined until 12/5 when AGEP was diagnosed then discharged on 12/7 (48 hrs after steroids introduced). At first many doctors and nurses thought it was Stevens Johnsons and a reaction to the antibiotic because I am also allergic to Penicillin. It was ruled out. Biopsies confirmed it was most likely AGEP. It has been more than 2 months since I was diagnosed, and I am still having eruptions on my palms and sometimes on my tongue. Each time we try to taper off of the Prednisone I have new outbreaks after going down to 30mg around day 7. Going back up to 40 stopped the outbreaks, but we only went back up to 35 after the outbreak on 1/21 and new spots continue to appear every 2-3 days. Labs show increased Lyphs Abs at 4.6, high Glucose. Other labwork results fluxuate with highs and lows in other areas. Have severe thirst and swollen joints. Awaiting final lab results to begin Methotrexate next week.
