That's a huge question. I have a lot going on with my health. Some unrelated, some I thought were other things and now have to wonder about whether they're my thyroid. One of my issues is I have limits to typing because of connective tissue problems and really need to rest, so other than start another thread on my mind, I think I'll wait until I know more about my test results before adding my symptoms. But thanks!!! Stay tuned...
Absolutley. Hypervascularity is an indicator of autoimmune thyroiditis. Did you have any thyroid labs drawn yet? These would include tsh t3 t4 (prefferably FREE) Antithyroglobulin ab TPO.
I understand your concern. I also have a lot on my plate. Goiter nodule, GERD, Lyme. All symptoms r running together and its hard to tell what is what anymore. If I can help in anyway I will.
