I was diagnosed with thyroiditis about half a year ago. I took prednisone for a bout 3 month and the symptoms went away, but my health was still not so good. About 2 months ago, I started taking USANA essential nutrient. The exact content of the supplement is listed at the end of this message. But about 10 days after I took the supplement, the pain in my neck came back. So I started taking prednisone again. Prednisone is very effective at suppressing the symptom (the pain) but taking the supplement seems counter-act that. Now I don't know what to do. Is the symptom after taking the supplement the so called healing crisis or could it be anything in the supplement that is causing the pain? Was it a mistake that I took prednisone after taking the supplement? Should I continue taking the supplement? I am desparate looking for an answer. Your help is very much appreciated!
