Multinodular Goiter Question

Hi Everyone,
I am new to this board and need to get some input. I have multinodular goiter and probably Hashimoto's. My Thyroid levels are all normal except for the thyroglobulin showing Hashi's. I have an enlarged thryoid that is about twice as large as should be with two large nodules on the right of which one is 3.6 cm and the other is 2.4 cm. Fine needle biopsy alittle over a year ago was negative. Mild left tracheal deviation on CT scan of the neck. My question is, for the past five months I've had some weird symtoms.... daily sore throat especially in morning, neck pain, bilateral ear pain, a grinding/clicking/rubbing sensation when I swallow. (Doc says it's just the cartilege moving). When I swallow it feels like it's tight and squeezing. I've also been recently diagnosed with possible "LPR", laryngeal pharyngeal reflux into the vocal cords and throat. I don't know if these symtoms I have could be from the thyroid, LPR or something else. ENT doc recommends thryoid be removed and so does endocrinologist even though my levels and bx are normal, though I'm not too thrilled to get it removed. I had a hysterectomy 1 1/2 years ago and that was rough. I wonder if the estrogen patch has affected my thyroid causing it to enlarge and cause these symtoms? Well if anyone can relate to this or shed some light on what path I should take I'd appreciate it. Thanks

Renee
