Help!! scared.. enlarged thymus gland, 3mm nodule on lung

Hello, I am 35 female, looking for any help I can get. I have had lots of health problems the past 3 years. I have migraines, fibro, & 2 months ago I was diagnosed with growth hormone defiencey.I have gained 100 pounds in 2 years. I am 5 ft tall and have always weighed around 115... Ive been dealing with muscle weakness and fatigue for a LONG time. Had to stop teaching. I went to er with chest pains and all over joint pain. they helped with pain but it was back the next day. they did cat scan with contrast and found enlarged thymus gland and 3mm nodule on lower left lung. I went to my endocronologists and he blew it all off. the er said it is a significant size and needed to see dr immediatly. I went to endo dr the next day. He ordered blood tests to look for antibodies?? and if it is positive then I will have to have a biopsy of the thymus gland.
If anyone has any info, advice, etc.. I would appreciate it so much. My life is confined to bed most of the time and I want my life back.
