goiter (feeling in throat!)
I've been sick off and on for nearly a year- they suspected in the beginning it was hyperthyroidism (weight loss, anxiety, fever, body aches) but all my panels came back fine.
I have continued to be sick and more recently my dr. suspects it's lupus.
I have all the symptoms of lupus but one thing they just found was a goiter on my thyroid.
I have been complaining for months that I feel like I haev something "stuck" in my throat. It's a weird/full feeling in my throat and it drives me CRAZY!
Finally my dr. said, "yep, this is a goiter" and ran more thyroid blood work and all of it says I am "normal."
I am still losing weight, have no appetite, have daily chronic fevers, body aches, etc.. I have no clue if this is all ONE thing or if I have a goiter on top of lupus.
Any thoughts why my panel is normal but I clearly have a growth on my thyroid?
