Re: Thyroid issues...help
Yes, your symptoms and all other symptoms on this thread sounds exactly like what I have been going thru for the past 10 years. I was finally diagnosed with two nodules on the right thyroid and later, after an ultrasound, there was three. The doc gave me 75 mg of Synthroid and I felt more energetic but still not up to par. She said come back in 6 months. I couldn't wait 6 months. Tongue has been swelling for years but didn't know why. Docs' said I was allergic to some meds. It did seem I couldn't take most antibiotics and pain meds. My tongue would swell and right jaw bone would "burn". My tongue was so swollen one night I had to go to ER. They said I had Strep Throat, gave me a shot and sent me home. Problem not cured. Made appt. with thyroid doc and told her I thought the nodules were growing. I felt a knot in my throat, coughed a lot. Couldn't get my throat clear. She ordered a biopsy of the three nodules. The doc who did the biopsy found another "spot" that looked suspicious. Biopsied it. Cancer. I had my thyroid removed May 19. Am presently waiting my 30 days to have the radioactive iodine therapy that hopefully will kill all thyroid cells. I do not know what to expect in regard to the therapy and what happens afterward. If there is anyone who has been thru it and can enlighten me I will be most appreciative.
