In brief: Maybe nothing

Autoimmune thyroiditis doesn't require treatment unless the thyroid is either over or under active.
Acute thyroiditis which can cause fever and be painful because of bacterial infection is treated. It is uncommon, however. Patients with autoimmune thyroiditis are routinely monitored to follow thyroid function.

In brief: RADIOACTIVE IODINE

When indicated, a drug called ptu (propylthiouracil) when indicated, and sometimes we need to give you something to lower your heart rate.
